Hi there – it’s been another busy week on the ‘Artists Make Faces’ project here at the City Museum and Art Gallery.
Some of my colleagues have been working with Monika Kinley, the curator for ‘Artists Make Faces’, to finalise the layout of the show. They’ve also been sorting out image permissions and audio resources.
Meanwhile, I’ve been working with our graphic designer, Nathan Gale, to firm up the visual identity for the exhibition. He’s done a great job. We’ve just sent lamppost and building banners off into production. Posters and adverts are next on the list!
I’m also finalising a website for the show. As always, we’re getting great support from the web team at Plymouth City Council on this. I’ve also been working with a local writer called Simon Bayliss who’s produced a series of biographies for us about each of the artists featured in the exhibition. The work he’s so speedily done will make great content for the website and will also be available to visitors as part of the interpretion for the show. Thanks Simon!
Finally, I’ve been doing lots of stuff on the social networks too. A big thank you to everyone who has retweeted about the exhibition so far and is helping us to spread the word.
I’ll be back next week with another update. Take care until then,
