“Freedom Just Around the Corner” opens at the Smithsonian Postal Museum!
Quick check-in! The exhibition I designed for the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum, “Freedom Just Around the Corner: Black America From Civil War to Civil Rights” opened yesterday!
Last night was the opening reception with expected fanfare, including ribbon cutting and speeches, cocktails and finger foods. It was all quite nice. I love when exhibits open!
Please excuse the crummy camera pics—full coverage of the exhibition will come soon!
Alongside the exhibition, I designed the catalogue, postcard takeaway, special postal cancel, and exterior banners. (As soon as I have pics I’ll post them!) I mentioned to the ladies at the USPS table—who were selling commemorative stamps and giving commemorative cancels, and who were so lovely—that I was the designer and I ended up signing some books. It was very sweet. :)
