A blog post by Senior Collections Manager Jobi Zink.
Now that the Jewish Museum of Maryland is open to the public 10-5 Sunday-Thursday, staff has a lot less time to get the behind-the-scenes work-in-public-spaces done. Here’s what we accomplished today –all before 2 PM!
Jobi, Darrell, and the Ravens-loving installation crew were unhappy that a Mayflower truck came to pick up the Chosen Food exhibition. (And if you don’t know why there was resentment scroll down to the March 24, 1984 entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltimore_Colts_relocation_to_Indianapolis. Heck, now I’m inspired to see the Almost Religion: Baltimore‘s Colts exhibit at the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards before Saturday’s playoff game!)
There was a moment of cheering when the truck drove away a few minutes later. The driver returned with a new truck, fully equipped with a proper lift gate.
Be sure to come to the Museum January 27-August 18, 2013 to see the amazing new exhibition about comic book super heroes.
