For Gardner—who has an impres- sive art collection of her own—being the steward of priceless works of art is its own reward. “I am always in awe when I find myself in a private setting in the presence of a Rothko, a Chagall, a Warhol…To know that very few have seen these works—it’s quite a privi- lege. I’m entrusted to make sure their future is secure.” With Gardner creat- ing the bridges, the journeys will no doubt, be smooth.
