Here's my notes after out talk last night about the traveling exhibit.
Easy to think of grand ideas, but first thing first, I will be more
focused in getting the exhibit photographed.
Britt wants to showcase this exhibit and have it travel more, and bring
in a bit of revenue. Here's what we need to do:
1. Photograph with digital camera every piece, both framed and in the
2. Organize digital images with the info provided (an internal document
info notation perhaps, and a standard file naming convention).
3. Provide digital images and info for advertising on the GNSI website.
4. Write to artists to invite inclusion of their reproductions in the
exhibit in order to update exhibit.
5. Provide a point of view for the exhibit, such as;
a. create a chronology of Sci illustration that spans a timeline.
This would require filling in a gap of missing years--probably the last
10 years or so to present.
b. Create a point of view that could compare past techniques with
modern techniques, once the exhibit has more up to date acquisitions.
c. Create point of view that might compare and contrast subject
matter in a informative way.
Perhaps advertising the exhibit as having a few possible points of view
in how its hung, picking and choosing the material presented, can make
for a fresh presentation in how its advertised on the web, keeping the
exhibit more alive.
First things first, simply get it digitized more completely. These ideas
above can direct the requests for new reproductions, and the multiple
points of the view of the exhibit can come about later on if we choose
to, or have the time to, use those ideas.
