Since he'll be losing his office along with his job, my husband decided to give his office decor as gifts, which the recipients have been happy to receive...To the black woman senior instructor, the poster of great black scientists, bought at the gift shop of the Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham AL, while we drove across the country to take this job.To the French Department that shares the CS dept building, the posters of the Abbeye Senanque in the hills of Provence, which I bought at the gift shop of the Abbey on our big tour of France 15 years ago.To the awesome department IT guy, the poster of a huge Saturn V rocket taking off bearing Apollo 11, which the hubster bought at Cape Canaveral.To the professor who creates and teaches the music and computing classes, the poster of a Romare Bearden collage of jazz musicians, which we bought at an exhibit in Washington DC when DD was in grad school there.To the professor who often appears as a supernumerary in Spoleto Fesitval operas, a framed poster of Tosca, something my husband acquired before I met him, related to his studying opera conducting.To the professor who used to be a general contractor, an amazing picture of a very complex, fitted wooden toolbox, which DH ordered from FIne Woodworking magazine back in the 80s.To the professor with a sailboat, a poster of the schooner Bluenose II from the gift shop at its home berth on Nova Scotia when we went RVing in the Maritime Provinces a few years ago.I don't think he's done gifting yet, but already he's teary eyed at his bare, unwelcoming walls.Onward!
