Installation!

The installation process of the imprint of war: responses in print has begun!

Early Monday morning, students from the class, our professor Janet, our Teaching Assistant Nicole, and the University Art Gallery Collections Manager (and Callot expert) Isabelle came to the gallery to hang the four large prints by Sandow Birk featured in the rotunda (as seen in the photos below). The group was led by Barb Antel, an expert in installations.

Later that evening, during class, we split into teams and were each assigned one room of the gallery to work on. We taped, calculated and measured our wall space and started to hang pieces in each room. Below are photos from the first room featuring prints by Jacques Callot.

We’re also very excited to include local artists from Pittsburgh in our exhibition as well as a fun and interactive response wall (soon to be full of post-its!). The students of the Museum Studies class will be in the gallery all throughout this week finalizing and perfecting the show in anticipation for the reception on Monday.

Remember: the opening reception for the imprint of war: responses in print is this Monday (October 31st) from 6:30 – 8:30. We hope to see you there!
