Happy President's Day!

Split Rock exhibit designer installing the Tower of Books at Ford's Theatre.

Today I want to celebrate the culmination of 6 years of hard work by Split Rock Studios and my very talented museum exhibit designer husband. One of his projects, redesigning the Ford's Theatre Museum and the Center for Education and Leadership, has been getting a lot of press lately. The project was featured most recently on "American Artifacts: Life, Death and Legacy of Abraham Lincoln," which aired on CSPAN3. Here's the preview which contains a glimpse of my husband installing the famed Tower of Books:

I'm so proud of him! The Center for Education and Leadership is celebrating President's Day with an Open House, at which my husband will be speaking, so if you're in the Washington, D.C. area today you should definitely stop by!

Tell Travis congrats from Minnesota for a job well done. Now that I've wrapped up a 6 month book project, I can only imagine the hard work that would go into 6 years. Whew!
