“The Morris Museum is beginning an exciting process of refocusing and recalibration, and our Smithsonian relationship is very much a part of this plan. Providing the Smithsonian a ‘footprint’ in New Jersey is an honor that the Morris Museum strategically embraces. We look forward to helping the Smithsonian serve the Nation, as we take advantage of the Smithsonian’s tremendous resources to serve New Jersey.” — Dr. Cleveland Johnson, Executive Director
