The Museum staff spent Friday February 8th setting up for the many amazing parts of Saturday’s Gala event. The current Daingerfield art exhibit was taken down to honor the contractual stipulations of our generous lenders of the many pieces, and new miniature replicas were put up in echo of the other current HMA exhibit, Exquisite Miniatures. The settings on three floors (tables, glasses, napkins etc) had to be prepared for the food, drinks, socializing and dancing. Welcoming remarks had to be practiced. And then there was the cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, far beyond the daily upkeep. But it was all for you, our happily anticipated guests!
