Besides the show, highlights of the visit were an introduction to the (free, fantastic, little-known treasure) Wagner Free Institute of Science by librarian Lynn Dorwaldt; not only did we tour the museum’s collection of specimens and fossils, but we browsed the collection of 19th century meteorology books.
If you visit AHN|VHS (appointments are required, through August) ask to see the great (affordable!) selection of work in their flatfile; also check out the other great shows in the building (at Vox Populi (especially the great Reanimation Library installation), Tiger Strikes Asteroid (especially the wall with David Scanavino’s pulp pieces on top of a wall papered by Ethan Greenbaum), etc etc etc.
