Exhibition Design / GR Public Museum

About This Project

Recently we designed a traveling exhibit, Grandmother Power, in conjunction with the Grand Rapids Public Museum. Based on the book Grandmother Power: A Global Phenomenon by photojournalist and author Paola Gianturco, the exhibit is a visual narrative highlighting the work of grandmother groups fighting for political, economic and social justice around the world. The installation is constructed from humble, sturdy materials like cardboard pillars and textile pop-up walls that suggest resourcefulness. A digital component allows visitors to share personal stories about their own grandmothers. We also developed the marketing campaign for the exhibit, which pairs traditional grandmother imagery with unexpected messaging. From Grand Rapids, a national tour for the exhibit is being planned.
