Exhibit Proposal
Uue Kunst Muuseum
Prnu

This is a proposal for an Exhibit that might be held during the July International Film Festival.  It could be quite small or as many as 75 examples.  I could curate the exhibit, frame the material, and prepare appropriate texts.  Perhaps the small gallery off the lobby would work for a small exhibit.  Interestingly enough, it is not a stretch to fit the Mees ja Naine show as well!

No obligation, of course.
