Cowboy Gallery


June 2016


ROLE:
Art director, Lead designer, Furniture design

BRIEF:

Redesign a core gallery to refelct a nuanced view of the iconic American cowboy. 

SOLUTION:
Design spaces, and displays in an entertaining, and informative manor. Favor experience and haptic learning over didactic explanation. Create fellowship and dialogue amongst visitors. Present objects that span a diverse time frame, that also express or represent different cultures. Place the objects in environments that inform how they are interpreted. Give visitors voice. Provide comfortable places to sit and play. Provide opportunities for amusement, and encourage visitors of all ages to play in the gallery, on the south lawn, and other spaces.
