People, Place, Influence (MCNY)
As a part of the Museum of the City of New York’s Centennial Celebration, People, Place, Influence: The Collection at 100 delves into MCNY’s collection to examine the eclectic range of objects collected by the institution over the last 100 years. This exhibition reflects on the museums history and found methodology to highlight objects that capture New York as a place, a population, a platform for creativity, and a center for influence. The layout of the exhibition’s content leverages the architectural arches of the building to house themes and a painted gradient circles the room to highlight the transition of sections— a design cue first introduced on the title wall. The exhibition is accompanied by a booklet that includes extended captions and image details of the displayed works.
More documentation images coming soon! :)
