Visitors to the Memorial Art Gallery have been using this suggestion box for over thirty years, depositing comments in the oval slot on the top, which are read and acted upon regularly. In addition to having a place to leave messages, Suggestion Box is also a favorite stop on many Gallery tours. At last, a piece visitors are allowed to touch! Visual appreciation of the polished surfaces and the sleek animal-like leg can be reinforced tacitly by running hands over the entire piece.
