Design Minds Announces Recently Completed Projects
Design Minds announced the following completed projects:
“One City, Many Cultures”
Mogan Cultural Center – Lowell, MA
Lowell is a city known for its role in the Industrial Revolution, but it has many other stories to tell. A new exhibition, developed over five years with more than 30 community members, captures the cultural stories of those living, dancing, creating, preserving, cooking, speaking, working, and coming together in Lowell over the past 150 years. The exhibition is told in English, Spanish, and Khmer, and features sensory experiences throughout. Vivid graphic installations and interactives are combined with ubiquitous scenes to create a unique and immersive experience.
Antietam National Battlefield
ANB Visitor Center – Sharpsburg, MD
Antietam National Battlefield Visitor Center has undergone a redesign to interpret the legacy of the conflict for a new generation. The updated lobby space and wayfinding graphics help orient visitors to the site, where they encounter this story through five universal concepts: Conflict, Terror, Survival, Freedom, and Memory. The movable tactile topographic map in the building’s observation room serves as a key point in the site’s history. The exterior displays include interpretive signage and a 15-foot sculpture that depicts a key moment in the battle.
“The Legacy of Sisterhood”
AOII Intl. Headquarters – Brentwood, TN
Freshly installed exhibits for the brand new Archives Museum celebrates over a century of philanthropy and sisterhood in honor of AOII’s 125 anniversary. Rare and historical artifacts from the collection include the Fraternity’s early records, the AOII Constitution, and the Alpha Chapter’s roll book. Members can record their AOII memories in the Alpha O Studio, listen to clips retelling the lives of the original Founders, and view the Dress Room featuring gowns worn by past international presidents.
