About the Exhibition
"Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born." - Albert Einstein
"'The Great Mystery Show' beckoned you, our visitors of broad stripe — each the star of your own personal mystery show — to explore our wholly original art exhibition exalting our human need to know. From psychics to physicists, 'The Great Mystery Show' artfully peeled away the veil from the unknown, exploring mystery as that one secret power underlying and inspiring all great art, science, and pursuit of the sacred. It included a salute to mystery master artist Edward Gorey, to cats, unsolved FBI’s crimes and disappearances, and to the odd and very mysterious behavior of Earth’s Moon." - Founder, Director, and Chief Curator, Rebecca Hoffberger
