If you’ve been following the OSUMA on Facebook, you know that we’ve moved the collection into the Postal Plaza Gallery and we are working at full steam for the soft opening just a few weeks away.
When the Postal Plaza Gallery opens in October, our main gallery will have an exhibition of sketches, photos, and plans that describe the renovation process. Elliott + Associates’ design emphasizes the history of the building, and this display will give visitors additional insight into how that concept translated into its final appearance.
The second gallery will have a preview of our opening exhibition, “Sharing a Journey,” which surveys the permanent collection. “Sharing a Journey,” which is scheduled to open in January 2014, will include over 200 works of art from the collection and will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated exhibition catalogue. The highlights that we have chosen for our soft opening next month introduce some of the stories in the full exhibition and catalogue.
As you can imagine, the weeks ahead are going to be very busy for us! As we ramp up our presence in the physical world, I’m going to be scaling back here in the virtual one. In other words, for now, the blog is going to update every two weeks rather than weekly.
