We were thrilled she was interested in exploring Jersey City and jumped at the chance to collaborate on one of her famous tours. At Curious Matter we've created an environment where every visitor feels comfortable enough to talk about art and ask questions. Mary-Beth brings that quality to entire neighborhood explorations and she makes it a tremendous lot of fun.
