David Bieber, curator of the wildly successful Verb Hotel in Boston and former Director of Creative Services for WBCN, WFNX and the Boston Phoenix, has outfitted Norwood Space Center’s Planet Storage, a 176-unit, 66,000 square foot self-storage facility, with 35 re-production pieces from Bieber’s own musical and historical archives. The exhibit is a tribute to the world of collectables and also features highlights of Norwood's steeped history of arts and innovation from both the past (Fred Holland Day) and present (Mighty, Mighty Bosstones.)
The stunning reproduction pieces, whose printing process was overseen by Albert Basse, Inc, a division of Norwood's Regal Press, include prints directly related to historic turn-of-the-century Norwood publishing companies Copeland & Day and Norwood Press. The Planet Storage facility has also been equipped with state-of-the-art Sonos sound system and video feeds from Motherlode.TV.
In addition, Bieber has signed a 20-year lease at the Norwood Space Center which will serve as the home to over 600,000 pieces of pop culture memorabilia. Though not open to the public, much of the Archives will be unveiled via future Space Center exhibits, in addition to The Verb Hotel.
