This week I performed the following tasks:
Answered budget questions from the fabricator
Started setting up the project budget outside of fabrication
2 interns started, so I set them up with work
I set up an Illustrator file for the title of a small exhibition the new curator was installing
I also created a video from clips he sent me for the same exhibit
Dave and I met with a decorative painter to understand his abilities and have him create an estimate for his work
I tried to source hazel wood for the wood conservator we intend to hire
I dug through boxes searching specific military-related objects I learned about from a conversation with a former curator.
Started looking for a second option for conserving some objects now since we learned that Buffalo State is unable to treat our objects within our short timeline.
I tested photosensitive dye by Lumi for T-shirts I’m designing for Sam’s crew.
