Preparation for the Opening of Asco
This week WCMA staff installed a large mural in the atrium of the museum in preparation for the opening of the exhibition Asco: Elite of the Obscure A Retrospective, 1972–1987 which will be on view this Saturday, February 4–July 29, 2012.
The mural Bound by Patssi Valdez was first laid out and condition checked in the Rose Study Gallery.
Then it was brought into the atrium and raised into position.
Next the mural was carefully tacked to the wall.
