Dear Lawrence Project: Exhibition?



Okay, I admit I musta missed it. Probably been around to have lived through most of it . . . but whatever.

I did write a letter to 'Dear Abbey' one time. She accused me of being a group from Harvard making up stuff to see if 'we' could get a response in the paper. I swore this kinda stuff you can't make up, and I didn't even know Hollis then. Or spacehog. Hell, I didn't even have a computer back then!

Duh . . okay, THAT project.

Density. It runs in the family . . .

"But really you guys, for all the buildup this project has received here, only one night run for three hours? Come on. It was packed. Give everyone a chance to see them. Why not put them up somewhere for a while?"

Ditto. As much as LJWorld hyped this event, I feel like there should be a display somewhere that will last for more than an evening.

I'm sure these comments won't change anything, but it would be nice if they actually did something. Though, overall it was a great event. Nice work, LJWorld.

We were overwhelmed and amazed with the positive turnout. We expected a crowd but not nearly the crowd we got. As evidenced by how many times we had to reprint the guides. We're checking with the Watkins museum and the Library to see if they'd be willing to play host to the exhibit this winter for an extended period of time.

We'll let you know when we have an answer!

I was having to deal with a disturbance in the lemur compound and missed the exhibition.

Mary Darst 6 years, 10 months ago

Not me, I'm not dense. I READ ABOUT IT ALONG TIME AGO. That's cause I read this here newspaper.

Why not make copies of the presentation and sell them to raise money for a local charity? I would have bought a copy. It was a great exhibit, if not a little crowded.

Tried to see the exhibit last night, but the line wasn't moving, there seemed to be confusion about where the line started, which direction it was going and some people inside couldn't get to the door to leave. After observing all that for a few minutes, I left. Hope to see it somewhere else in town.

RoeDapple 6 years, 10 months ago
