Civil War from Fort Sumter to Emancipation
Beginning in May 2012, I was a part of the Exhibition Design and Production team as an intern at the Indiana Historical Society. For about the first month, I helped where I could for graphics and installation of the Ending Polio exhibit. In July, I began working on the Civil War from Fort Sumter to Emancipation exhibit. Installed on the 4th floor in mid-September, I matted and framed all of the pieces, art directed and designed all the panels and text layouts for it, created the flow and displays for all information, and made a full mock up of the space, to allow an understanding of where everything would go once finally in it. I managed the project, having guidance from Senior Director of Collections, Steve Haller and Senior Archivist, Barbara Quigley, and helped make sure that deadlines were met.
