Pick Your Favorites for an Upcoming Exhibition

Thanks to everyone who helped test the poll last week. Now, this is it! For real this time. Let the voting begin! Remember, this is your exhibition, so have fun!

For those that missed the test last week, here’s a reminder of what we’re doing:

Fenimore Art Museum is organizing its second blog-curated exhibition scheduled to open in the Spring of 2011. The content of this exhibition will be determined by you, our readers. You have the opportunity to vote for your favorite post, and the posts that get the most votes will be included in the exhibition along with the object most closely representing the content and, of course, the wording from the actual post as it appears in this blog.

Please note that we have included the dates of these posts so you can go back and reread them. Voting will end on Friday January 14th.

Thanks again!
