A guiding sentiment from the PRC's 20th anniversary Founders' Lecture 
- "Do It Yourself: Towards a Responsible Audience" - by A. D. Coleman:

"By the way, go right ahead and transform the PRC itself whenever that proves necessary. Help it move into the new millennium as a vital force and a flexible resource for this region. Shape it to your needs. Trust me when I tell you that Enos, Weiss and I did not intend it to be a static monument to anything -- not a monument to one or another approach to photography, not in any way a monument to us, and definitely not a monument to itself.... This place, its possibilities, are yours. 
I know I speak for Jeff and Chris too when I say: Treat it like you own it."


Now, we have the privilege to ask: what will develop next?
