For those in the "business" (a term that hardly describes the work that goes on in places like the museum), the late Gretchen Worden of the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia was the undisputed kahuna.
Gracious, mysterious, witty beyond mere mortals and a true force to be reckoned with, she was the Mutter.
The Mutter just unveiled her portrait. We can only hope to achieve the same in the afterlife.
