Adrienne Clarkson says of His Highness: “Through his words, through his actions, and through the results obtained by the institutions that he has pioneered, he is a beacon of light in much of the world’s conflicting darkness” — and as one of those pioneering institutions, the Museum is proud to further our mission of connecting cultures through art.
