Delivery to El Paso

We delivered most of the framed prints to the El Paso Museum of Art, for a show next year -- from January 31 to May 22.

The prints were framed at New Grounds Print Workshop in Albuquerque.

The prints were delivered 17 Dec, 2015.

We are still missing a box of 6 prints.  Ultimately the exhibit should include 30 prints.

Update:  We delivered 5 more framed prints on January 7th, 2016.  Plus we switched out Matthew Poe's print with a cream mat, for one with a white mat:

Update (Sept 2016):  This is how I packaged the glass framed prints for the El Paso Museum exhibition, when I took them down from the Matrix Gallery show in Albuquerque:

Prints were enclosed in bubble wrap,
and fitted with protective corners 

2 prints in one bubble wrapped package,
face to face,
with a piece of cardboard in between
