On Friday afternoon (12 April), a woman walked into the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) only to be welcomed by the entire gallery’s staff assembled on the main stair, as well as the NSW Minister for the Arts, John Graham.

She was handed a bouquet of flowers.

The recipient was a teacher – Alana Hunt – who was bringing a class to visit the museum, as she had many times before. The difference was that she was the 20 millionth visitor to enter the MCA since it opened its doors in 1991.
