Constructing the Exhibit
We began by taking out the last exhibit and repainting everything white!
While painting the insides of cases, new walls began to appear! Quickly, the botánica began to take shape. (The wall frame on the left was erected where the ladder was standing in the previous picture, and the one on the right is the new entrance to the botánica).
Here is the entry way covered in particle board (waiting for a fresh coat of "Glamor Cow" paint).
Building doorways and walls, painting EVERYTHING and of course, preparing cases to hold the collection. I installed this case with the help of Mark Price (who did the majority of the construction for the exhibit). Mark installed the pegboard here, and I put in the tracks for the glass shelves.
