As the Halloween ghouls and goblins and geese came out last night, the deadline for our design contest, Playing with a Full Deck, also came to a close. Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter!
Our panel of judges will get to work and choose a winner to be announced at a tour and reception for the exhibit, Mirror of Humanity: Seeing Ourselves in Playing Cards, on Monday, November 11th at 6pm. From 6pm – 7pm, we’ll have a guided tour of the exhibition with curators Jane Siegel and Kimberly Springer. Then join us from 7pm until 10pm for games, food and a cash bar for beverages with the contest co-sponsor, Hex & Company (2781 Broadway at W. 112th). Please register in advance.
A prize will also offered for a fan favorite selected by public vote. Visit the exhibition in the RBML’s Kempner Gallery to vote for a fan favorite (6th Floor Butler Library) from November 11-15, 2019.
