The styrofoam backings for the White House Redux installation arrived this morning. Because the gallery space is still due for a coat of paint on the floor, we have to store the foam blocks in the basement office. "It's a foam party," said Susannah Bohlke, Storefront's Programs and Development Officer. Storefront's employees are also learning today that styrofoam has a unique smell. "It's sweet like honey, but not in a good way," Ms. Bohlke commented.
We are currently looking for a nice home for the styrofoam to land post-exhibition. Perhaps we can turn them into centerpieces?
