Up and Running!

Two days of wind and rain had no discernible effect on the panels. While this is what we expected, it's nevertheless a relief.

Friday's (Dec. 31) installation generated a lot of publicity for the project, to wit:.

- WUTC Around and About interview (aired Jan. 5) about the site and the exhibit-making process, accessed on their blog at

- A  30 minute-talk radio (WGOW) discussion (Jan. 3) about the project featuring Frances and Nick with host Andrae McGary.

-  Allison Carter's photographs appeared in the January 1 metro edition of the Times-Free Press under the title "Bluff View Artwork."

- Wesley Schultz of produced an extensive photographic blow-by-blow of the process; you can see it at

- Channel 9 (WTVC) covered the work in a 6:00 News presentation entitled "Restoring Bluff View History Through Art" at

- Finally, the Channel 12 (WDEF) news coverage, "Bluff Furnace Art Installation," can be viewed at
