Deanna Templeton takes over Dusseldorf...

With only one functioning arm.

We walk over to the NRW-Forum and are greeted with a huge Deanna banner hanging over the doorway. As you saw in the last post, there are posters all over town in circular stands and billboards. It is impossible to walk through town without seeing Deanna's work.

Times have changed. Deanna made me put on the white gloves! Her artwork has now climbed to the "White Glove Treatment" level. You know you are big-time when...

A team of professional art hangers got busy putting up work faster than Deanna could figure out where she wanted it.

Deanna and Werner, the Director of the NRW-Forum discuss the finer points of a body autograph.
Ever heard of the magazine Stern? It's pretty big in Germany - like David Hasselhof big. They featured Deanna on their website.

Deanna with some of her recently hung photographs.
Did you know your can buy her self-published book (with sponsorship from RVCA and Emerica) called "17-Days" at the RVCA Store?

Deanna asked for the room to be painted blue, and within 4 hours it was painted and the team was busy hanging and expertly lighting each photo. Museums don't mess around.

The next day started at 11 AM and ended at 7 PM with Deanna doing non-stop interviews for newspapers, magazines, and TV cameras. She was a trooper.

The sign when you walk up the steps to her floor...

These TV people set up a dolly shot so Deanna could walk in front of her artwork. They had very specific ideas. I had to sign the woman's arm for the camera so they could get a signing shot.

The lighting was really nice. It makes you focus on just the photographs.

Congratulations Deanna. The show looks epic.
