Opening Saturday August 1st!!

The exhibit is hanging and looks great! I am so excited to share it with everyone! I have had wonderful help this week from Ben, Samantha, Tina, and Shana! Thank you all! What a great experience. The exhibit has also received lots of press. It is a pic in the Nashville Scene, the City Paper, there was the Tennessean article and on Talk of the Town. I am so amazed at the response to this project. Hope to see everyone out at the opening and remember you can bring more things to donate and install at the show!
