Creating an exhibition is about more than just pairing objects with labels and hanging a few panels on the wall. Good exhibits take visitors on a journey through history, educating and inspiring them along the way. This involves space planning, selecting appropriate materials and lighting, and an understanding of design principles. This workshop will teach the basics of the design process, from initial concept to installation. Come prepared for a day of hands-on, creative work that will leave you well-prepared to plan your next exhibition.
The last day for registration and refunds is July 23.
