For the last week we’ve been installing costumes for the just-opened exhibition, The Making of Gone With the Wind, at the Harry Ransom Center. While our installation is small, (five costumes within the larger exhibition of other materials), they are voluminous, fragile, and pose many display challenges.
During this time I was reminded of this hilarious post from staff at the Museum of London, “Things they don’t teach you at curator school.” 
Many of you may have already read this, but if you have or haven’t, please enjoy again or enjoy for the first time!  And good luck with your fall exhibitions, everyone!
