“For the love of art” is the motto of the Society for the Promotion of the Kunsthalle Mannheim, for which I have been elected chair of the board. This is an accurate description of what keeps me busy when I am not in the office. Photography is also a great hobby of mine, and not only to ensure that I have mementos to take back from wonderful trips to faraway places. It also stems from the desire to fill my walls with art of my own creation.
