Hinges and Hearts: Metal Dolls on Display
The first of two programs based on With Love from Tin Lizzie and the metal and mechanical dolls in my collection took place last week at GAHC, where we had a very good and enthusiastic crowd. Using a PowerPoint presentation and several dolls, I told the story of the project and the history of dolls in general. The Museum director, KL, created wonderful banners and posters with quotes from Anne Rice and my book. The dolls, robots, and automata were displayed to their best advantage in cube cases and in traditional glass cases in the Main Gallery and on the 4th Floor. Below are some of the images from that event. Our next program will involve readings from my book and from other poets and writers in our area, and will occur Feb. 16th. My thanks to GAHC, and to my husband who photographed the dolls. More of his work is on his site, Milanipc.com. Enjoy!
