Moving Ahead at the Museum

As students work to complete final projects and study for finals and the community prepares for holiday festivities, the museum staff is also keeping busy with our renovation plans. Changes are being made daily, and we are excited to share our progress with you. Ashley and I have been drafting exhibition scripts for the new galleries so that we can begin the process of installing works of art in their appropriate cases.

Ashley is looking at the current floor plans to develop an exhibition script for the Mediterranean gallery.

Although the museum has been full of activity with the semester culminating, there are still plenty of areas for a peaceful moment in between the chaos of classes, studying for finals, and other obligations. The view from the Sculpture Court reveals the museum’s holiday cheer.

We will return to the blog in early January to share more stories and updates with the blogosphere. We have quite a bit to talk about, and we are eager to hear from you as well.  Until then, we hope you have a happy and restful holiday season!
