I believe that visitors construct their own experiences when they visit museums and that infuses my approach to exhibition design. It is the responsibility of the creators of exhibitions to provide a variety of opportunities for visitors to feel as though they are participants in the discovery process and to be able to construct their experience. We should create opportunities for visitors to explore, discover, and contribute their knowledge and opinions. We must design a variety of experiences for different learning styles so exhibits will touch visitors emotionally as well as intellectually.
To accomplish these goals, it is important to prototype and test our exhibit concepts with prospective visitors.
My background as an art educator and my passion for theater and the visual arts influence my exhibitions. I believe in the transformative possibilities of the arts and I work to incorporate artists into all my projects.
