I started installing my show in the Blick gallery around 2pm on Weds the 4th. I worked on hanging the manifesto drawings and getting the rough form of how I wanted the ‘Personalized Ex-Voto Enshrined’ pieces. My parents and sister showed up on Thursday afternoon and we got down to business. It was a struggle getting things to hang straight using the hanging wires. It would have been really nice to have just nailed things into the walls. But we overcame and by the end of the day most of the walls were up and hanging well. Friday my Dad built the bottle cap display wall while I filled in with the smaller shine boxes and my mom and sister worked on assembling the miracles and wishes wall. The grandparents showed up in the afternoon and by 3 everything was done! This left enough time for a super short nap and getting pretty. Check out some sweet pictures of the work going up. It was a bunch of work but it turned out looking amazing.
thank you to Ali Aiken for the pictures.
