Install week is over and the summer shows are up and look fabulous! It is pretty magical to see an exhibition take shape. There are always moments when you are sure it will never be ready in time, but hard work and a dedicated prep team ensure success. After a hectic week we finished cleaning plexi and hanging wall text just in time for a lively and well attended panel discussion and members opening reception for Nature as Artifice. I don’t have any pictures from those events yet, but I do have some to share from the docent training sessions that took place Friday afternoon.
