First, here are the last two entries that arrived this week~ this first one is from Sarah, my project partner here at Lackman. Sarah is from Lenexa, Kansas:
And the second is from my son Andrew, who lives in Olathe, Kansas:
Thank you, Sarah and Andrew, for sending these along! The deadline is now past, (although I will hang anything else that comes in) so here are the photos that show how the exhibit looks!
I used the plastic binder on the end of the table for large or fragile items that needed further protection, making sure the artists’ names are easily seen.
The “mailbox” was loaned to us for this display, so I made comment cards for patrons to fill out. And library card applications are also handy. I’ve already heard some very positive remarks, although most people are totally unfamiliar with the concept of sending first class mail, let alone mail art!
Once again, I’d like to thank everyone who participated, the artists, my co-workers, and friends who contributed display props and ideas for presenting the artwork. If anyone has questions or remarks about the display, please leave me a comment!
Thank you for helping us observe Library Card Sign-up Month!
