“One of a Kind Wonders”
Berkshire Museum, Pittsfield, MA
While strolling through collection storage on her interview tour, the Berkshire Museum’s new director became inspired to exhibit the flotsam and jetsam of the museum’s holdings. We created a tongue-in-cheek exhibit, highlighting the curious nature of many of the artifacts, ranging from a brick from the Great Wall to Victorian pictures made entirely of human hair. Pavilions fabricated of translucent corrugated fiberglass and vintage broadside style graphics pointed toward the origins of the American museum as close to the traveling circus sideshow.
