Museums promise knowledge or beauty within their walls for the public to find. I see it in the same way I see throwing a coin into a wishing well, or searching for a four-leaf clover for luck. The person throwing or searching is trying to find some sign, symbol, or, in a museum’s case, artwork that suddenly makes their universe understandable. That leaves me with the question: how important is the quest for [luck, knowledge, beauty] in the eventual obtaining of these things? I want to give luck in the same way museums give beauty. Should this fountain flourish, it will provide guaranteed luck to those who wish to take it.
