Extreme Exhibit Makeover
History Museum meets Reality TV! Follow the action on the project blog.
Latest news: Tania Katan, the Producer of Shenanigans at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, will be the guest MC during the Extreme Exhibit Makeover installation!
The Extreme Exhibit Makeover is a process of creating new exhibits through the collaboration of professionals from different fields – history, art, exhibit design, and so on – and a member of the local community. Two teams of professionals are competing for the best exhibit design makeover, while the public watches the behind-the-scenes action on video!
Team Jersey Shore participants include Andrew Scott, Lucy Pope and Elissa Blattman. Team Kardashian participants are Lynda Andrews Barry, Lindsay Brennan, Michael Simons, and Andrea Childress. Larry O’Reilly is serving as the project “Lifeline” for participants to call on when they are in need of help and Susan Baker is batting for both teams as the graphic designers!
Jersey Shore is asking the question, “What is community?” when a community no longer has a central gathering place, like a general store. Team Kardashian is looking at the life changing experience of serving in the armed forces from a historic and contemporary perspective.
The public is invited to drop-in at any time during two-day installation at the museum on March 15 and 16 and vote for a “people’s choice” winner.
