Last week was relatively quiet as far as installation goes, although we were still busy with the last bits of proof reading and with getting ready for our opening celebration. More platforms arrived.
The faux painter changed the look of the loading-dock door, which will be background for the factory portion of our exhibition. At larger museums, the loading dock is separated from galleries. For smaller buildings we often have to contend with backstage functions imposing on the front of the house. Most museums with this problem would want to hide their loading dock door during exhibitions with some kind of baffle, but we decided to embrace ours as factory ambiance for the large machinery. Everyone is excited by the transformation of the door. The faux painter is now getting ready to create our brick wall.
