Last week, I got an email inquiring if I was interested in constructing a White House Gingerbread Replica for the Museum of Science and Industry. Without really thinking of the work involved, considering there's only 2 weeks of work days left, I agreed.
I have since, met with Mike Foran, Publicist for the museum, Anne Rashford, the Director of temporary exhibits and events and the creator of the White House Replica hinself, John Zweifel. This man's work is amazing. From the photos on the walls, to the pots and pans in the kitchen, to the lawn furniture and settees in each of the rooms, you have to see this exhibit. The replica itself, although called a miniature, is not...it is about 20-25 feet long and maybe 10 feet deep. The house, including several treasures from the White House is on temporary exhibit at the Museum and will open tomorrow and run until Feb 2010.
