Last Tuesday a group of artists from the Heritage Lottery Project went to Glasgow Museums Resource Centre to see the progress of the exhibition we are curating.
We meet with John and Tony and saw several of the pieces we had selected on the ‘core’ being built. The ‘core’ has been constructed from different wooded panels and is in two separate pieces allowing it to be placed inside the display case.
All our objects were not yet on it as several of the shelves and platforms were not yet attached.
Having no previous experience of working with a display case, learning about the core and how it is made in order to display the work as effectively as possible has been a fascinating experience for all of us. We also discussed the panels for the wall and planned advertising postcards for the launch event.
As of now we do not have a date set for the launch but it is looking like it will be in early December.
