Finally the big day came: every painting was placed in its frame, and all of the paintings loaded in the van. Mark Mitchell (wood worker) and I arrived at the Grand Rapids Art Museum ready to hang, and found just the perfect wall waiting for us. It took five hours to hang, with Mark being very exacting in his measurements and exacting in the placement. When we were finished, we were delighted with the entry's appearance! I was the first of 43 artists with my artwork up!
