The client wanted: To provide everyday visitors with information and interactive interpretive opportunities to experience the otherwise hidden art collection.
Showcasing 3,200 works of art that are rarely seen by the public, the Luce Foundation Center for American Art was transformed into viewable storage gallery.
Weldon Exhibits designed multiple formats to access the collection and the stories behind it, including graphic way finding, interactive touch screen kiosks and a 40-foot-long media wall. Award winning touch screen interactive allow visitors to see right into the labs and studios to watch conservators at work, ask questions, and learn about the preservation and study of the collections in their care.
