Move over, millennials. There’s a new kid in town. Heralded as the most diverse, best-educated generation yet — it’s clear that the Generation Z population (those born after the mid-90s) is much more than simply the “little brother” as they start trickling into the workplace.

Remember that time someone threw an incredible party. A party people talked about for months.

There’s something really special about an art museum. The way it demands silence and reverence. The colors. The ideas. Their allure isn’t only in the silence but the unique experience found in each and every museum around the country.
