Mom and I delivered a minivan filled with 56 disks today to Waterworks! I can't believe I thought I could haul it all in a car. I have to give a major thank you to my mom for helping me hang the show. As a 5 foot tall person, I use my height for intuitive hanging: an arm's length high and wingspan wide. I'm great at eyeballing; however, for a show in a museum, you need to be precise. My mom is the queen of "anal retentive" and quite the "Rain Man" with numbers. At 70 years old, she can run circles around my athletic students. I know the museum director said they could hang my works but I find it rude to dump your works and go. I'd also like to give a major thank you to everyone at Waterworks. Anne Scott Clement and all of the teachers and workers were so kind and hospitable. They are going to finalize the lights. labels, and vinyl lettering before the opening reception September 15. I hope to see you at the show! Stay tuned for updated pictures once the lights are set.
