Exploratorium "Self, Made" Exhibit
I assisted one of the senior designers and a number of other curators at the Exploratorium with the launch of their summer ‘19 show, “Self, Made.”
This exhibit was of special objects that immigrant students from the ESL class at SF City College had brought with them from their country, with translations of why they were special in their native language and English. We needed to make the exhibit ADA friendly but didn’t have room for large type in the display case, so we created a book of large type instead. I illustrated each of the objects so the book would accompany the physical objects. These types of illustrations of museum objects are weirdly one of my favorite things in museums. The ultimate pay-off for finishing this book was seeing the ESL students interact with it when they came to the exhibit launch.
