Museum Exhibition Retreat - September 27, 2013
Picture this, on the Chapel Hall floor: blue tape, copies of old photos laid out, notes, people conversing back and forth all in a flurry of activity. Well, on September 27, 2013, that flurry of activity was the Gallaudet Museum's staff discussing exhibition layout plans as part of preparation for its 150th Anniversary Exhibition, called Gallaudet at 150 and Beyond.
The tape represents the size of our display panels, and the copies of old photographs were there to give us ideas for how to design the panels. The panels will be placed on the wall at eye level, with photos, descriptions, and documents displayed to indulge you in the history of Gallaudet University.
Included in the group were Director and Curator Jane Norman, Museum Consultant Dean Krimmel of Qm2, Designer Scott Carollo, Chief Writer Meredith Peruzzi, Museum Staff Support Specialist Brian Suchite, and Museum Exhibition Writers Amee Powell, Amber Rush, Trevor De Rosch and Derrick Behm, and Dr. Stephen Nover.
