"I have a tremendous passion for making a good exhibition. You’ve got fifteen artists, who’s going to be in the first gallery? The order in which you place the artists... you try to achieve... climaxes — something new is coming around the corner, it’s going to knock your eyes out...” — Dorothy Miller (one of 42 pioneers) in "Particular Passions: Talks with Women who Shaped Our Times"

Dorothy Canning Miller, curator of seminal exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art of her contemporaries, who went on to become the great American artists of the 20th century.

One of the reviews of Particular Passions:  “This is a wonderful book... The book is recommended reading for anyone — no matter what political or sociological background — who wants to know more about living history.” — Santa Cruz Sentinel.
