Project: Interpretive Galleries for Picturing Mississippi, 1817-2017: Land of Plenty, Pain, and Promise
Client: Mississippi Museum of Art
Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, included interpretive spaces within its Picturing Mississippi, 1817-2017 exhibition. A Closer Look Gallery explored the elements of art via playful activities on line, color, and shape. Family Corners introduced the subjectivity of maps, immersed visitors in a painting where they became the composition, explained dangers of 19th-century river travel, invited close looking at artwork, and encouraged contemplation and expression about cotton. Pop-up interactive components appeared near five works of art and encouraged deeper analyses of those pieces.
