GAFFTA: It’s all happening

Sha and I are here at GAFFTA after midnight the night before the show (and the place is packed! packed, I say, with smarties), finishing up the final details of our installation (which opens tomorrow), Alfonso and Julie (pictured below) are gracefully and delicately applying our wall-sized maps to the walls of the mezzanine, Josette and her crew of volunteers are handling the whole show, it’s all coming together, I can’t believe it, huzzah!

Update 10/05: a previous version of this post referenced Josette in the image above: that’s actually Julie, who was incredible to work with and totally helpful and was very much appreciated throughout the whole process. Thanks Julie!
