The next step....


And now the show is over. The Map sits in a dozen boxes in my garage waiting for the ride to Michigan. With any luck it will be unpacked and re-installed on shelves in my back bedroom studio at the farm by November 10 or 11. And I will be back at work on it! I can't wait!

The MASS MoCA show was a huge success- at least from my vantage point. The staff, headed by Joe Thompson, Sue Killam, and Eric Enderle, was extremely supportive. They seem to answer all questions with a "Yes!" They undertake any project with the attitude that anything is possible. And then they manage to pull it off! I owe them a huge debt of gratitude!

PS...big thanks to Steve Taylor who rode the scary Genie lift to get this spectacular picture. Greg Whitmore's updated video will be coming along soon!

    1. Maybe all of you who would like to see the Map in person should let me know where you are located. It would be good for me to know where I should push to have a showing....

  3. I saw your map featured on our local CBS station's Saturday morning newscast today... loved it! (also, my family and I play Minecraft so we were kind of geeked out about the mod!)

  4. Hi Jerry,
    I live in a suburb of Boston. My daughter & I really want to see your map but we just couldn't make it out to North Adams. If you can show it in a venue closer to Boston, I know we would come to see it for sure.
    I just bought a piece of your map on ebay & I'm really looking forward to getting it.
    BTW, I'm Bruce Worman's sister.
    All the best,
    Ruth

  5. Jerry,

    What an amazingly wonderful and extraordinary process and accomplishment! Would have loved to see this in person.

    I live in the Midwest and would love to see your next show.

    Wishing you all the best,
    Mary

  6. Thanks to both Mary and Nora! I hope to have a show somewhere in the Midwest next year since 2013 will be the 50th anniversary of the Map's inception in Ann Arbor. Any ideas?
