Installation a Success!

Installation for the NMU School of Art's Winter 2010 Senior Exhibition, 'Untitled', started yesterday morning and ends this afternoon. Luckily, I managed to get almost everything installed rather quickly yesterday -- Steph doing all the hard work, of course. We had a few mishaps with the L-hooks being too close together, and putting a few more holes in the wall than was necessary -- but in the end, installation was relatively easy.

Daily Photo: Useless Creatures

The photographs are flush against the wall, thanks to the L-hooks. There are no backboards -- just the print and the glass, held in place with the hardware. Overall I am quite pleased with the layout and the photos I selected for the show. Ideally, I'd love to have more on display, with more photographs of animals in a more decayed state, but due to time and space constraints, not to mention the fact that I need more photos of decayed animals in the first place, that wasn't going to happen.

Anyway, in the coming days I'll post a few more pictures of the senior exhibition, because it's just so darn awesome, semester after semester. There are a lot of truly talented artists at this school.

Related, I did enter November Skunk (April) into a concurrent show at the Students' Art Gallery (the exhibition hilariously entitled 'Untitled II'), and that piece was accepted, so... photos to come of that, as well! (As a sidenote, there are a few other Useless Creatures hanging up around town. March Gull and January Pigeon are on display at the Kaye House, and January Pigeon can also be found at Donckers.)

The Northern Michigan University School of Art and Design's Winter 2010 Senior Exhibition, 'Untitled', opens Wednesday, April 14 and has its closing reception Friday, April 30.


  1. The installation looks beautiful, Jorie! I wish I could see it in person. Please do post more photos!
