    Linda Fragassi is my sister-in-law. She has always expressed how much she likes working with the wonderful people at Crystal Bridges and how she enjoys talking to all the visitors she has met from all over the country. Linda does her volunteering because she not only loves it, but believes it has broadened her appreciation of art and something she feels very good about doing and hopes more people will consider volunteering.
