installation started yesterday, 7 march.
i was there at 5:30 and worked until 8:00.
room 5107.
installed all the art ( 17 paintings) that i brought....but i may add a few more pieces tonight or tomorrow.
i did not see a lot of folks installing, though there are many floors of course. when i left the sign out sheet at garage level had only 14 folks who signed in to install, though more could have come through other entrances.
i ran into a problem with the elevators...only one out of six worked to let me out on the 5th floor....at one point neal and i were stuck in an elevator on the 7th floor...doors wouldn't open at all.
ran into victoria and she said she had contacted the engineers to fix the elevators.
another issue i ran into was the hallway lights running in the corridors outside my room didn't work. this could be a safety issue when aom opens...dark hallways at night and a crowd of people...i "assume" aom will find the appropriate folks to put in new lights.

as always, fun to install at aom and anticipate all the exciting days to come.

went to install again yesterday and added more art to my wall. i will return again tonight to add one last piece.
there were not many folks installing their art that i could see.

a problem....the electric closet near my room is making a horrific racket  :headonwall:.  no other electric closets on the 5th floor were making any noise at all. i could hear the sound all over the 5th floor. hopefully it will be fixed! i reported it to the volunteer at the garage level elevators and asked him to tell victoria when he sees her (he said she was there...i did not see her)

did my first aom volunteer shift yesterday 17 march, 12:45-5:45.
was very nice to see some of my aom friends again after so long.

there was art already installed, artists installing  but also many many rooms totally empty. since today and tomorrow are the last two days of install i imagine it will be very busy today.

i work my 2nd and 3rd shifts today, 18 march and tomorrow 19 march, 12:45-5:45.
i look forward to seeing lots and lots of artists getting there spaces ready for the opening next week!

worked my last volunteer shift yesterday, sunday 19 march 12:45-5:45.
i worked the lobby and then was a "walk around" helping artist who had questions, issues with their hanging, etc.
i had expected that, since it was the last day of install, aom would be hectic and although there were many artists painting their space, hanging their art, last minutes tweaks, etc, there were , on all 7 floors, many many empty spaces..artists had signed up ......their blue cards were on the wall.....but nothing else.
i know that on saturday artists who still had empty spaces were contacted by phone or email to "remind" them that time was running short......so i am quite surprised that there were still so many empty walls when i left at 5:45.maybe they came after that? maybe???? i have no idea....
it will be interesting to see, at the opening next friday, how many empty walls there are.....
i do hope everyone showed up....the more exciting art...the better.
