I can’t believe that our first exhibition ‘Face-off’ is already coming down. Arbeia closes for the winter tomorrow so the work is moving to the viewing gallery at Segedunum to be seen by visitors this autumn. We swooped in and it was de-installed in a matter of minutes which proves that planning is everything! We had a great chat with the staff who have loved having the pots on display. Apparently people have wanted to buy them, find out who they were and how they happened to be there, so the staff said that they had been wonderful conversation starters for young and old. The visitor numbers have been amazing too!
Next it was in to Segedunum and it took about an hour to instal ‘Face-off’ in the viewing gallery. They have a great view of the fort site and if you look up at the windows from the car park you can just see some cheeky faces looking out! The identity pots will be here until the last week in November when they move to the Sill.
