I'm very touched by what Liz, Gerri and Albert wrote. But mostly I'm happy that the Museum is getting such a positive reception. Credit goes to many people, but it was our designer, Joe Hines, who really shaped it into such a beautiful and welcoming experience. I always felt it was important to have a designated space for Bix fans to come and celebrate their love for him and his music. Our next step is to organize our collection of archival material at another location where people can access it. All of this takes financial resources, so I'd like to remind anyone who loves Bix to please contribute to this enterprise. Just because the museum is now open doesn't mean that our work is done. Phase two is next on our list!
