I recently un-installed my second art show, and I wanted to share some of my learnings and thoughts from it. These art shows are monthly rotating displays of art made by Getty Images employees; not the professional photographers (though there are several regular folks who have photography hobbies at Getty).

The second firing did a much better job of demonstrating the flexibility of glass. After the piece was up for about a week, a colleague bought this piece - hurray!
