Teaching What We Do: Exhibit Design

TMDA will be teaching museum professionals how to plan, design and produce captivating, interpretive and interactive exhibits that engage and educate our audiences. The Texas Historical Commission http://www.thc.state.tx.us/index.html recently awarded the group the bid to teach a series of workshops on exhibit development and design. The workshops will take place in October and November and be held across the state in all ten regions of the Texas Heritage Trails Program.

Workshop participants who are largely museum staff and directors will learn core concepts on approaches and objectives of exhibit interpretation, methods of research, exhibit development and design, as well as graphics and production logistics. The workshops, part of the Preserve America series, are Part III of an ongoing series to develop heritage tourism, preserve historical and cultural resources, and boost local economies.
