But once in a while the odd thing happens,
Once in a while the dream comes true,
And the whole pattern of life is altered,
Once in a while the moon turns blue.

I'm feeling calmer now -- seeing the light and narrowing down my TO DO list!. Graphic designer now has the approval to proceed on the invitation and catalogue. Had good meeting with MDC yesterday and finally feel as though everything is on track. ESPECIALLY since I've bought a little more time with the opening date now set for December 2. . Not only does this give me (and the graphic designer) a bit more time, but it will open just before Art Basel -- chances are more people will be in town for the opening. Everything is exactly as it should be. I just have to always remember.

Thinking of different approaches for installation of A of A. My previous concept for the Centre Gallery involved blowing up each page to 22 x 30" and pinning them on the wall but this won't work for the new space. Now I'm thinking of printing the pages out at various scales and suspending from the ceiling with monofilament. Still thinking...

I'm having to rethink things considerably now that my exhibition space has changed. I went over to the Freedom Tower and took some pictures and measured all of the walls. The windows will all be covered over and the dark piece that you see at the left edge of the photograph is a moveable wall that will not be in the space. I need to figure out how many pedestals I can work into the space without overwhelming it. I want to maintain a feeling of a clean clear space.

Quite exciting news yesterday -- my exhibition will be moved from the Centre Gallery at Wolfson Campus, Miami Dade College to the newly renovated Freedom Tower. As my architect hubby says, it's the best building in Miami, built in 1925 as the headquarters and printing facility for the Miami News. Recently acquired by Miami Dade College, the facility has been transformed into a beautiful space for art exhibitions and installations.
My new exhibition space will be quite a bit smaller than the Centre Gallery but is definitely a better location. The exhibition will open in late November -- date to be confirmed -- concurrent with a large exhibition of Salvador Dali. All very exciting and more to follow...
