Rolling Out the Red Carpet

By: Kathy Kelsey Foley, director on September 7th, 2011

Most everyone knows that feeling of looking forward to something special . . . and then, in the blink of an eye, it’s come and gone.
Such is the Birds inArt opening weekend experience!
We’re at t-minus forty-eight hours or so until we welcome more than sixty-five of the 2011 exhibiting artists and hundreds of Museum members and guests to an array of Birds in Art events.
We’re rolling out the red carpet now.
No surprise that Birds in Art preparations are ongoing. Work on the 2011 exhibition began while last year’s exhibition was still on view and continues until the first visitors arrive.
We’d like to think that we leave nothing to chance when it comes to ensuring that every “i” is dotted and every “t” is crossed. If you, gentle reader, know of something overlooked or have a suggestion, we’d sure like to hear about it.
The pace of activity today is at a feverishly high level. Everyone has a lengthy to-do list and assignments that span from early-morning until late into the evening. Our goals are to treat every guest like visiting royalty, to creating vivid and lasting memories, to ensure that everyone has a grand experience, and to exceed expectations.
Lofty? Yes. I’m confident that the multi-talented Woodson Art Museum staff is up to the tasks at hand.
Now, back to the carpet rollout. There are still many things to do before the 2011 Birds in Art exhibition officially opens.
