November 5th, before the display was installed.

Its last stop was at the University of Detroit Mercy.  They installed the exhibition on the lawn on November 5.  It was between the library and the liberal arts building.  They took it down on November 23.  The people who dismantled it told me that they’re retiring it, likely taking all the toys and stuffed animals to the dump.  If they do it again, they’ll have to acquire a new cast of characters.

They put it up on a Tuesday and took it down on a Saturday.   On November 23, I knew that they’d be taking it down soon so I went out to take a few photos, only to find 3 men taking the display down.  I knew two of the a bit and was able to ask a few questions.  It was cold though.  I didn’t want to slow down their work.
