Senior Exhibit Designer
6000 square feet
This was an interesting project because the Heard Museum collaborated with The Desert Botanical Gardens and the Allan Houser Studios. The Heard has an amazing collection of Houser's work, it was nice to see some of it on display. And it was wonderful to see the different takes on the Houser collection and how the work fits in so many different spaces, large galleries, small galleries, our courtyards and the DBG's gardens.
I was to design the gallery and manage the construction; design casework, assist the curators in selecting objects, layout the objects, select a color pallet, design the lighting, work with the graphic designers, work with the mount makers, have the gallery furniture fabricated, and install the objects in the cases with the curators and registrars.
