Senior Exhibit Designer
10,000 square feet
This was a new retail space that got added to the Heard Museum to showcase contemporary Native American art that is for sale. Along with the new retail space we added new offices, storage and a closing room. This gallery has proven to be a great asset to the Heard Museum Shop. This was fun because I got to design unique furniture including my first bench and my first flat file ( I usually designed a lot of pedestals :).
I was to design the gallery furniture and manage the construction; design casework, have the gallery furniture fabricated, and select furnishings and lighting for the gallery and the closing room. I selected tiger maple for all the furniture and it was all handmade and hand turned. I went with a modern aesthetic to go with the theme of the gallery. I'm in love with the flat file and I will make one for myself one day.
