Orientalist Art Events

This was an exhibit design – event design hybrid project that was executed in two locations, Washington D.C. at the Mellon Auditorium and in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit featured a world class collection of orientalist art and the events included a symposium of thought leaders and gallery-opening-style evening reception. On the design side we were responsible for defining not only flow and space planning for the exhibits, but also graphic design development and created the foundation’s logo as a part of this process.

This was a very involved and challenging project where I was engaged in a role of art and creative direction. Many thanks and credits indeed go to my talented design colleagues, Marie-Noelle Daigneault and David Truong, who spent many hours designing and creating the most beautiful of renderings, Meghan Schofield and Robert King who worked on graphic design, and Greg Jones who engineered and detailed the myriad of components for these exhibits/events. The Account Executive for this project was Ron Nicynski, Renee Spragg was Account Manager, Matt Solsbery was Project Manager and the wonderful Dan Kitchen was Production Manager. I am beyond proud of how this project turned out – it couldn’t have come to fruition without drawing upon the fullest extents of the Hargrove team’s talents.
