|The display poster is comprised of many individual pieces.|
We managed to get organized and get up our Black History Month display at the Headquarters Library today. I must say, I was really pleased with it and was getting compliments on it before it even made it up on the wall.
I printed this wall display design in three large pieces: the center quilt image on one large format sheet, and the background quilt frame--cut horizontally across it's length--in two sections, top and bottom. Next, I printed out 8.5x11in biographical information pages that I pinned overtop the background quilt image and further out onto the bulletin board wall. Each bio page had a length of real yarn that attached to a stick pin on both ends, tracing a path from the bio page to the photo of the person it belonged to.
We will also include a "vote" box, wrapped in the same quilt design (but with no profile photos on it), to ask patrons to offer their suggestions on who they think would be a good person to add to the quilt. Once we tally up some votes, we plan to substitute some existing profile photos and bios with newer ones to keep the display constantly changing and interesting.
