These photos are mostly installation views BEFORE the lovely reception for Once Upon a Contest at the Manchester Historical Museum. The show continues through April 26th. There was quite a turn out on that gorgeous sunny Saturday so I fell off duty taking photographs during the party. The Editor of the Manchester Cricket was on site; I will add a link to any story/photos. Please visit the beautiful exhibition, read the books explore the museum and library, and discover Leslie Galacar’s temporary public art installation created just for this site.
