Subject: Accessorizing your office
I am collecting ideas on different (and inexpensive) ways to accessorize your office with pictures, photos, plants, etc. Here are some ideas that I’ve heard of, but if you have any other ideas, please email them to me and I’ll add them to the list. Also, as you can see from the list, I am missing some information. If you can fill in the blanks, that would be much appreciated.
1. Get the Photo Studio ((SD-G85? Has this been moved to the CVC?) – 224-6000 – https://photoweb.senate.gov/photologin/Default.asp) to print some of your digital pictures and have them framed at the Frame Shop (SD-G82 – 224-0602).
2. Botanic Gardens (226-4786 or 225-8333) will supply plants to your office.
3. The Library of Congress has on-line images (will print off or download for free?) of Senators, courthouses, etc., that can be framed at the Frame Shop.
4. National Gallery will loan some copies of art to your office. (Contact name and phone number?)
5. The Department of the Navy (and Army, etc.?) will loan items to your office. Congressional Liaison offices:
a. Army – SR-183 – 224-2881
b. Navy – SR-182 – 224-4682
c. Air Force – SR-182 – 224-2481
6. Copies of maps from the Library of Congress Geography & Map Division? 227-MAPS
