This picture was taken from the Dictionnaire encyclopédique Trousset, also known as the Trousset encyclopedia, Paris, 1886 - 1891.

Daily Thoughts 1/14/2011

Today was an interesting day.  We had a meeting about scheduling this morning which went fairly well.  The displays are in good order.  I also spent some time talking about ordering with the head childrens librarian.

We have display cabinets in the rotunda which we use as an art gallery. The rotunda has a fresco from the Works Project Administration which is a copy of the Unicorn Tapestry in the Cluny Museum in Paris.  I put in a variety of regular size and oversize books on African American and African artists to complement the show they are doing today.  It complements the Diaspora A Cultural Expression of Art exhibit opening which is this afternoon between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.
