Crystal Thompson

Museum Educator

If you could study with any artist or scientist, who would you choose and why?

Growing up in Los Angeles, California contemporary art surrounded me. I’ve always held a particular interest in neo-expressionism. Therefore, I would love to have a study session with Jean–Michel Basquiat. He had a natural brilliance to incorporate suggestive dichotomies that spoke volumes. I would be thrilled to know his artistic approach pertaining to current events.

What is your favorite thing about Louisiana Art & Science Museum?

Art & science in one building, YES! As a parent and educator, this is so important to me. Historically art and science were often thought of as polar opposites. However, the Art & Science museum encourages interdisciplinary learning and makes it so much fun!
