Photohunters: Card(s)

It is common for museums to have engraved metal name plates for some works of art (or it used to be), but I've noticed an increased use of cards for titles and information in many museums.
The card above goes with the art below. I took the photographs a few years ago at the NC Museum of Art. I realize in some ways this post is similar to my take on last week's information photohunt except last week I used large poster size cards at a old railroad town and this time I'm using shots from a museum.

You know I noticed that too about information on cards, I guess that's easier to fix if there was a typo or other types of error.

Happy weekend.

Happy weekend to you Carver.

Hi Carver --

I find the information cards in museums more, well, informative than the metal name plates. So am happy to see them about a museum -- something I actually wrote about in my Photo Hunt entry! ;b

i guess the engraved metal plates cost too much. the printed cards are much more cost efficient.:p

Museum visits are lovely and I take photos of the info for each item too. Just in case I forget :D
