What a year! If you’re visiting this page to learn about the 10 Years of Boston Baby Photos anniversary show, there’s an overview posted here.
Today we hung the show in its final library: The Brookline Public Library (in the Main Branch at 361 Washington Street). It’ll be there all month. A great time to see it would be at the Artists’ Round Table this coming Monday, May 5th from 6:30-8:15pm (more info is at this link).
And then you’re also all invited to the closing reception at the Library on Sunday, June 1st from 1-3pm. That afternoon we’ll be joined by a representative from The Jimmy Fund, and we’ll be presenting them with a “big check” from all of us. I really hope you can be there.
In case you aren’t able to stop by, I thought I’d share a few photos from today.
The library itself is gorgeous:
The exhibit is on display upstairs in Hunneman Hall, which is a beautiful, enormous room used by the library for gatherings and events:
Upon entering the hall, you see six of the ten categories straight ahead:
And then if you turn around, the other four categories are hung on the facing wall.
It was such a pleasure to hang the show using pins instead of on those tall white boards we’ve been using all year – it looks so clean and crisp to me! Here’s a closeup of the pins:
The hall itself is just such a pretty spot – I love the floor, and I’m a sucker for the high ceiling and beautiful light. Can’t wait to celebrate the end of this incredible year on June 1st at the closing reception.
And, as always, I’m still collecting donations for the Jimmy Fund on a table at the show. The families whose photos are in the show are sending donations now in trade for their mounted photos – I can’t wait to see how much more we raise!
We’re at $3,955 as of yesterday’s visit to the P.O. Box.
To have the checks counted in our “big check” we’re giving at the June 1st event, mail donation checks made out to “The Jimmy Fund” before May 15th to:
Boston Baby Photos
P.O. Box 870144
Milton Village, MA 02187
And if you’re sending the donation as a trade for your family’s photo in the show, and can’t come on June 1st to pick up your photo, it’d be great if you could include a $10 check made out to Boston Baby Photos to cover the cost of shipping.
Keep those checks coming!!
