Intern Files: April 24th

As usual it is a very busy here at the Windisch-Hunt Art Gallery.
I've been connecting with editors of magazines and Fine Arts councils seeking new contacts and looking at new opportunities for the Gallery and our artists. I've been contacting the International media in anticipation for the POW WOW travel agents conference as well. We're very conscious here of the community and supportive of all that goes on in it, and we want to always be included in what goes on in Miami. We have a total of 5,000 cards printed for distribution, to be placed in all the Coconut Grove hotels and the Miami Beach Convention Center. 2,000 cards printed with this image of the gallery and 3000 advertising an upcoming exhibition.

In other gallery happenings.
We sell hand painted coconuts in the gallery for $22 each, and between $6-8 for shipping/handling costs. Now we've initiated a new interactive component for tourists where they can come and paint their own coconut for $12, not including shipping charges should they wish to mail them out from here. We're making more of an effort to reach the tourists through trade. AnnaMaria allowed me to write the press releases for the painted coconuts to go to the Florida and international media.

For the Sunday's Mail Art reception part of my job this week was to get out all the guest book email invitations, we have over 3,700 permission based emails. We always ask our visitors to sign our guest books and tell them to leave their emails if they want invitations to our openings. We have a lot of international visitors, but most of our emails are from the south Florida area ( the designated tour bus stop is right in front of our gallery :) )
