The Curator of the Canton Museum Exhibit “Sacred Voices” asked me to send an estimate of shipping and insurance costs to Ohio. Since the painting was sold a few months ago to a collector, I did not have it to weigh but I did have a selection of 9 12″ x 12″ empty canvases, the same format as the painting. I found the proper box, put the canvases in, drove to FED EX and they weighed and gave me an estimate. What fun to tell the helper at FED EX, when she asked, that I am sending a painting to a museum.
The next step will be to pick up the art from the collector, who is happy to loan it for the exhibit.
