In Ellen Harvey’s gargantuan piece “ Metal Painting for Dr. Barnes,” the artist catalogs over 800 metal ornaments from the permanent collection at the Barnes Foundation Art institute in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Today in the fine arts open studio, museum guests will look closely at this work and create their own catalogue of images presented in the form of the book. How will you organize your book?
