Setting Up At Blick's, Day 6:

The CHER Pop-Up Group was in need of assistance that would count as Summer Fellows hours for help putting up artwork at Blick's. Having set up a show before this didn't sound too hard until I saw where we were going to be hanging up the work. We were to hang the work by wires about fifteen feet above the floor with racks of paper distancing us from the wall. This was not going to be easy.

My job mostly was to measure each artwork and determine how long each length of hanging wire should be in order for all of the pieces to hang at the same height. This involved a very complicated formula involving how the height of the hanging space, the the height of the work, and lots of adding and dividing to make your head spin.
This required a calculator to get a result. Once I did get an approximate length I then had cut the hanging wire at a specific length, including the hook.

There were times though when I miscalculated and sometimes the artworks didn't hang right (thankfully no accidents!). It was exhausting, but eventually we got all twelve(ish) artworks up on display for all of Blick's to see.

I'd hate to be the one who has to take these down!
