For the upcoming show, we are painting the galleries, as museums do in between each exhibition. All the nail holes have to be patched, colors chosen, pylons (movable walls) painted and border put on he pylons. The rich deep red on these pylons took several coats. Notice the baseboard on has been put on one of them.
I asked our preparator if there were ever "too many nail holes and patches " in the walls. he said, Definitely. Our walls are cinder block with plaster over them. It's hard to keep patching and painting and keep the walls stable and looking nice.
