Organization: California Museum
Role: Lead Exhibition Designer
I was hired to help the California Museum design and implement their recent exhibition exploring the history of voting in California, Power of the People: Voting In California, 1850-2016.
There were many goals for this exhibition, and they were keen to have many sections fitting into a fairly small space.
One section, Campaign Posters, was to go into an awkward space; with very tall ceilings and building facades from different decades all around. Instead of ignoring the facades, I recommended that we build a foreshortened “yard” in front of the facades using picket fences to give visitors the sense that they were viewing campaign posters in a kind of yard near a house.
