Museum Exhibit Design

Exhibits communicate to different kinds of audiences through 3D structures. They are used by museums, zoos, businesses, institutions, and in many others to educate, inform, and motivate. This course provides hands-on experience in designing, developing, and assessing exhibits that will be used in real-world settings at the University of Nebraska. Each year, the class will select one exhibit among various proposals, meet with a client, prepare planning and design documents, construct exhibit elements, conduct formative assessments, install the exhibit at a local site, and create a portfolio of the entire process.

This course is currently running for the second time. These are images from the first exhibit on Myron Braake installed at the Ken Morrison Life Sciences Research Center, the Nebraska Center for Virology’s home.
