We have been so busy the past two weeks that we had no time to blog. We will try to remedy that today by catching up.
As before, many activities were going on outside the museum rather than in the gallery during Week Five. All the graphic pieces of the exhibit – text panels, labels, prints, photographs – were produced at a special graphics production house. This material was delivered all at one time. In addition, our carpenter was working on platforms and cases in his own workshop. They will be brought in over a ten-day period during weeks five and six. Most came in finished, but one or two came in parts that needed to be assembled on site.
Monday, May 18, was exciting, because all the graphic pieces came in from the printer. Also our designer was on site to oversee and instruct the exhibit installers about where to hang everything. See her at left. She is on the phone and cutting mats at the same time.
And the installers were right on it. Things started going up on the walls very quickly. In fact, the gallery was a beehive of activity.
Here is the case when finished:
You can see why we are happy. We only wish we had enough time to accomplish everything before the big opening on May 26.
