Graham, it has been a good year for your print use and appreciation. The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology are so grateful for the botanical prints installed in their hallway. Dean Theresa Lee, College of Arts and Sciences, is pleased with the prints we installed in Ayres Hall. And then of course, there is Henri and the maps in Geography --- a huge success.
At the Museum we have multiple classes using maps and natural history prints. See picture in the most recent Quarterly Newsletter you should have received last week. Our academic programming for UT student is really growing – Since July, 3,250 UT students have been engaged in object-based learning in the Museum.
One of the history professors suggested that we sponsor a contest for the best student essay relating to the study of maps or natural history prints. If we did this, would you be willing to provide a framed print to the winner, perhaps an Audubon Octavo or antique map? Perhaps two awards – one for map use, the other for natural history.
Just a reminder, we still have an invoice for $62,500 under our AGREEMENT.
How is Walter? Hope he is prospering with the Tibetan art.
