In Exhibitions Design, we like to make to-scale paper copiesbefore moving to the more expensive materials.
Tabitha Cravens is one of our very talented Design Interns. She graduated from Herron School of Art and Design with a BFA in Visual Communications.
She is currently working hard on an exhibit that we are developing for the Athenaeum Foundation. This exhibit is going to be constructed out of aluminum, PVC and acrylic panels, each one offset off the wall to create depth and visual interest.
Using paper and board, Tabitha isexperimenting with the distance each panel will float from the wall. Using cheap materials in this process keeps her work very freeform and easy to change. This will ensure that the final result is well thought out.
