Our Exhibitions staff stays busy and works hard. I had no clue how much time, patience and work goes into just installing an exhibit. That doesn’t even scratch the surface of the entire project. Here is an inside peek at our experts in action.
Chief Curator Marina Pacini and Collections Manager Kip Peterson, discuss the placement of the photographs.
Chief Preparator Paul Tracy patiently measures not only each photograph, but the space between each wire. Every image has its wire hung in a different place, so the preparators must measure them exactly so the images hang in a straight line.
Now, he levels each image after hanging to ensure symmetry.
Officially starting the hanging of the photographs.
