The interplay of light and shadow on the interior is one of the features museum staff is so excited about.

The interplay of light and shadow on the interior is one of the features museum staff is so excited about.

“Groundhog Day – a day of new beginnings – It’s the perfect day for the world to get the first glimpse of our beautiful new museum facility,” said Claudia McGill, Board President. “We’ve been working on this transition for such a long time, but it was worth the wait.”

The building, an enamel on metal construction whimsically shaped like the crisper drawer from an old refrigerator, was chosen for its durability, increased exhibit size, ability to show off the collections, and price. Mr. Claudia McGill, Claudia McGill’s husband, is to be credited for the discovery of this gem. “It was a diamond in the rough when we first toured it, said Claudia McGill, curator. “I had no idea how we were going to make it work. But I should have know that Claudia McGill’s vision and determination would pull us through it.”

After a thorough washing, polishing and shining (courtesy of Claudia McGill Cleaning, Just Like Mom Did It) the building sparkles.

“Now we can show off our astounding collections to the public and they can receive the recognition they deserve,” said an excited tour guide, Claudia McGill. “I’m sure we’ll need to increase our hours to accommodate the crowds. I just can’t wait.”

The current collection. Notice the space! The airiness!

Acquisitions Head Claudia McGill said, “Winter is a terrible time to come upon new items, what with the snow and so on. But we’ve been doing it somehow and this building couldn’t have come along at a better time. Plus, we do have more special exhibitions planned, if I’m not stepping on the toes of Claudia McGill, Exhibits Director, to tell you so, and it will be just great to have the space for poetry readings and the like.”

“The overall feeling is so positive,” said Claudia McGill, neighborhood resident. “Our town really is lucky to be the home of a cultural entity like The Claudia McGill Museum of Things Claudia McGill Picks Up From the Street When She Is Just Going Along Being Claudia McGill and Doing Claudia McGill Things.”

In honor of the occasion, the members of the collection posed for group photographs. They are proud to be a part of the Museum and are especially happy that the building was itself a cast-off and rescued so that it could be appreciated again.

    I have reached the point of fandom that I get excited when I see a new post featuring the Claudia McGill Museum show up on my dashboard! (Please let your PR Director Claudia McGill know that she can use my words as testimonial in any advertising materials she wishes.)

    While I am certainly happy to see that the collection is now housed in a wonderful venue, and indeed the interplay of light is conducive to full appreciation of the Things that Claudia McGill found while walking around being Claudia McGill, I am disappointed at the lack of diversity of objects…indeed, I point to the fact that within the collection there is no rock or paper objects! Surely his is an oversight by the curatorial powers!

    Claudia McGill, our founder, has decided to limit the collection to metal objects due to this very problem of the immense diversity of things lying on the ground and the resulting headache resulting from making decisions. She likes metal, she likes rust, she just loves to find something that fell off something else, and so metal is her choice. The museum occasionally does exhibits in other media, such as our popular Rubber Band display, but metal is the focus and the mission.

    By the way, Claudia McGill has plenty of rock objects but she can’t resist painting on them. Paper, well, her lovely home has been filled with it for years. Picking things up from the ground has been a dedication of hers from childhood.

    Thanks for visiting the museum!

    PR Director Claudia McGill replying, and it goes without saying Claudia McGill is thrilled to hear of your enjoyment! And your kind offer will certainly be taken up – I believe our upcoming brochure, despite its uncertain completion date, could really use such a testimonial. Thank you for your devoted fandom and we will endeavor to continue to earn it.

    I hope you’ll accept a lifetime pass to the Museum – good anytime, anywhere, anyplace you see Claudia McGill and/or the Museum or any of its activities.

    Excellent display. 🙂
    You have given the public a real nuts & bolts understanding of true artistic endeavour. I dare say a visitor to the museum would become enamelled with the exhibition pieces.
