Dinosaurs in Your Backyard

The West Hartford Children's Museum identified several project partners to contribute content for a new dinosaur exhibit for young children. Hoping to create a learning pathway extending to adulthood around paleontology, The Yale Peabody Museum, Dinosaur State Park, and the University of Connecticut contributed artifacts and scholarship to the exhibit.

My Role: Working in collaboration with the Paul Orselli Workshop (POW!) I co-conceptualized the narrative, identified artifacts and interactive opportunities, and worked closely with the design-build team throughout the fabrication process. I coordinated content for several interactives, including the design-a-saurus, and identified and worked closely with James Kuether, a recognized paleo artist to create commissioned imagery for large scale murals as well as writing the label copy. Dinosaurs in Your Backyard opened in February 2017.
