Marcel Duchamp

    Thank you for letting my kid and I had a wonderful experience in a great setting (I truly think MOCA is a perfect spot for a Chess Tournament).

    Would it be possible to get in touch with the lady that got the winner’s pics? And again, I think the trophies were the most original I had seen. Hopefully you keep polishing that same original design!

    Great work!
