THE KINSEY COLLECTION, MUSEUM DISPLAY AT THE AMERICAN PAVILION IN EPCOT, WDW FLORIDA
Worked as the Creative Director for the full concept of the museum exhibit featuring slavery era and black history related artifacts and art from the collection of the Kinsey family.
Also designed and produced all of the wall-panel graphics depicting a timeline of American events with the displayed artifacts and art in historical order.
GOAL: Take slavery artifacts and art and present it in a hopeful and educational light that would be palatable for a Disneyland vacationing audience.
SUMMARY RESULT: We divided the artifacts and space into four main concept and color blocks. Hope; Blue, Courage; Green, Belief; Orange and Heritage; Burgundy.
• Creative Director: Work through several concepts with Walt Disney Imagineering to create the right concept and tone to present the artifacts that also incorporates interactive technology including "Magic lanterns" and iPad learning.
• Artifact Curation: Worked with the Kinsey's directly to curate the right blend of available artifacts and art for display.
• Display Case Design: 3D layout of all artifacts, coordination with artifact historical staff for installation and fine art fabrics and materials.
• Graphic Design: Concept and design the large-scale mural timeline graphics for the museum that color match the display case fabrics.
• Writing and Research: Strike a balance folklore, fact and history in a tone that will be neutral and acceptable to all audiences.
