Friday, October 27th, 2017 — 9am to 12pm
Meijer Education Center at the Historical Society of Michigan — 5815 Executive Dr., Lansing MI 48911
What makes a museum exhibit communicate its message successfully? How do historical organizations present concepts so they are compelling to visitors but still within the budget? Building professional-looking exhibits on a limited budget has become easier in recent years due to advancements in graphic design and printing technologies. Drawing from personal experiences working in small museums, the speaker will address several low-cost options for designing and mounting displays. Organizations with changing exhibit areas are especially encouraged to attend. Presented by Tammy Barnes, Tibbits Opera House.
For in-person attendees, refreshments will be available. Lunch is on your own. Materials are included with your registration. Any handouts from the presenter will be sent to remote attendees after the workshop.
