Here's what the gallery looks like from the door. We decided to take a cue from the domestic nature of our gallery spaces and picked colors inspired by Victorian interiors.
Our hard-working intern, Anne Baker, is excellent at turning exhibition cases purple. Thanks Anne. Thanks also to our other collections intern, Anne Lutun, for helping us move all the heavy cases into position. I wish I had taken pictures of that project!
Here is our cozy prep-room space filled with fabulous Civil War documents waiting to be matted and framed.
See how it all comes together when Voices of 1863 opens on May 1!
