With a strong european museum background, notably in Lyons, France, Coline Niess is the spirit and organizer in chief of the exhibition and the inspiration for, among other things, the 3D masks and overall presentation. Her understanding of the process contributed to a superb world-class expo that attained its goal: to move people.
