Now On View in the Gallery: New Carpet!

Carpet before & after

If you’re curious why Gallery Director Rose O’Donnell has an extra spring in her step — several of us do, in fact — look no further than the brand-new carpet providing that spring.

Much like the walls, the carpet in our gallery takes a beating (not so much from hammers and nails as from tens of thousands of feet every year).

The installation of our new carpet took all day yesterday, but here’s the whole thing in 10 seconds:

So come in and enjoy the new carpet while it’s still pleasantly squishy and smelling fresh!

The color of our new carpet, by the way, is Slippery Stone.

Out with the old …
Out with the old …
… and in with the new.
… and in with the new.
There was a lot of furniture moving involved.
