Paul Hybert submitted this reminder of the upcoming deadline for applications to exhibit at this year's American Numismatic Association convention. The convention is the site of our annual NBS meetings as well, so this is a great opportunity to exhibit your numismatic literature to an appreciative audience.
Exhibiting at the 2014 ANA Summer Convention
Are you thinking of placing a Collector Exhibit at the 2014 ANA Anniversary convention? The deadline is almost here -- applications must be received at ANA headquarters by June 20. The convention will be held on August 5-9, at the same venue as in 2011 and 2013.
It takes time and effort to create an exhibit; the Exhibiting page at
has links to the rules, application, and an essay on preparing an exhibit.
The ANA will return to suburban Chicago for one more year in 2015, and then it will be in Anaheim (2016) and then Denver (2017). If you can easily travel to a future convention, please think about what numismatic story you could tell.
Exhibiting is not possible for most people -- the exhibits must be in place by the early Tuesday morning opening of the convention, and the exhibits cannot be removed until very late on Saturday afternoon (when the convention closes). The only convention activity with a smaller turnout might be Len Augsburger's morning running group.
Send any questions to the local committee at our re-used address:
Unless the rules have changed, I believe exhibitors can designate an assistant who can set up or take down your exhibit if you're unable to do that yourself.
It's well worth the effort to make it happen; your fellow bibliophiles will appreciate it.
