You've probably heard Mies van der Rohe's quotable summary of the Modernism movement, "less is more." Architect Robert Venturi, sometimes hailed as the father of Postmodern architecture (though he disliked the term), riffed on Mies's statement, proclaiming "less is a bore."


Kirkland Museum's Founding Director & Curator, Hugh Grant, has humorously adopted Venturi's sentiment and attached his own phrase—"more is more"—to describe his collecting and display style. The generous displays allow visitors to experience objects as they might in a home, and let visitors "choose their own adventure" in deciding what to look at.
