Dear Jana and Docent Team:


Quite awhile ago, I had made these 3" x 5" cards for the Chihuly Walking Tour. Easy to carry, with the main points to talk about.  I got most of the information from our docent notebook, as well as from I printed out each sheet onto cardstock, cut them into 3" x 5" cards and slipped each card into a clear plastic recipe sleeve, just in case it rains! They work great for me, so perhaps you might want to make up your own set. Have at it!


I had also done another set of pictures of each of the Chihuly baskets, cylinders, etc..... when the display was in the hallway display cases, but haven't rearranged all of the photos to match the sequence in the Gallery where they are now. I'll get to it, now that Rockwell (sad) is over.


But all the photos of art in TAM collection can be downloaded from the website. That site really has it all. Lots of good quotes by Dale in the many essays that are online. Just depends on how much time you want to spend!


Hopefully, these "visual aids" will help someone.
