NIH Clinical Gallery: installation photos

Today's installation at NIH went very smoothly, thanks to hands-on help from Judy Coady and support from the gallery's curator, Lillian Fitzgerald. Getting onto the NIH campus was a breeze as well - they have it down to a friendly but thorough system.

In Three Acts is a way for me to take advantage of the unique opportunity that three empty glass cases presented. It's a lot of fun to see it come to fruition.

What a healing atmosphere there! There is art gracing most walls and quiet spots to contemplate beauty. I'm thrilled to have my work included. The exhibition is open to everyone, and runs through March 4, 7 am to 9 pm daily.
