The numbers supplied by the IMA back up this report. Apparently 14,540 people stopped in from Dec. 26-30--compared to 5,308 who visited during this time in 2006 when "Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt" was the featured attraction. And the 2006 numbers even had an extra day worked in (The IMA, like most museums, is closed on Monday, which cut into this weekend's take).
So to what do you attribute the success of the show? Substance? Marketing? A deep Hoosier fascination with things Roman?
And, if you went, how did the show work for you?
