Gallery Guide

Project: Picturing Mississippi, 1817-2017 Family Guide
Client: Mississippi Museum of Art

The Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, presented the exhibition Picturing Mississippi, 1817-2017 in honor of the state's bicentennial. Kiyomi designed and produced a family guide in collaboration with the Museum to assist families with self-guided tours through the monumental exhibition. Users of the guide explored the galleries via activities that focus on portraits, landscapes, prints, paintings, embroidery, photography, abstract art, and more, set in the context of the state's 200-year history. The guide concludes by encouraging young artists to unfold the pamphlet to reveal a "canvas" where they can draw a picture of the state's future.
