Friday Photos: Merci Beaucoup!

Over the last few months, we grew quite fond of Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and his Contemporaries here at the DMA and were sad to see it go last Sunday. Our Poster Studio in particular was always such a lively space, full of creative visitors designing their own posters inspired by the exhibition. We wouldn’t have been able to offer this engaging activity without the help of our amazing volunteers, both new and experienced. Their contributions made the Poster Studio a reality and we are so grateful for their support!

As a final adieu, I wanted to share some fun and amazing facts about our Poster Studio:

  • Number of Posters Created: 7500
  • Number of Dry Erase Markers Used: 646
  • Number of Hours Volunteered: 773

And the title of Most Valuable Volunteer goes to Chuck D’Arcy, who volunteered a whopping 74 hours of his time. Thanks to Chuck and all of our other volunteers–we couldn’t do it without you!
