I had a great morning hanging the traveling 10 Years of Boston Baby Photos Gallery Show at the Jamaica Plain Library – it’ll be there through Thanksgiving weekend. FYI – this is the last library show on the books until it heads to the Brookline Public Library for the month of May 2014. There are some other library and location possibilities for the show for January through April 2014, but if anyone knows of a local space that might be interested in hosting the show, please let me know. The show will end its one year tour after the May show in Brookline, and I’ll be dismantling and selling the photos to benefit the Jimmy Fund.
(More information about the show and a catalog of all 100 photos in the show is available by clicking on this tag and scrolling down, down, down the page.)
This month the show is hanging at the Boston Public Library’s Jamaica Plain Branch, and it will be there through Thanksgiving weekend. Here’s a taste of how it looks in this library…
As you can tell, I’m not using the white hanging bars here – they have a gorgeous mantle that encircles the entire library, so we got to just lean most of the categories of photos along that high mantle, above the shelves of books.
We even got to lean some up against the windows, since it’s November and they won’t be opening the windows this month…
(And yes, in this next picture – that is Uranus, from the Museum of Science’s cool exhibit installed around Boston showing the scale model of the solar system – more info about that exhibit is here. But I digress…)
And then we were able to hang two categories in the lobby of the library from the balcony level – it’s a little hard to see in this picture, but that’s “gotcha” and “classics” along the top balcony here:
You can see it better in this one – both “gotcha” and “classics” are hung like this:
And last but not least, one in the display case in the lobby:
I hope you can swing by to see the show this month! The library hours are posted here.
