The objective was to design, develop, and install a complete exhibit that interprets the story of the Voting Rights Movement in Selma, Alabama. The exhibit had minimum impact to the historic building’s interior.
We developed the narrative of the Selma story through extensive research into the lives of the many people involved on both sides of the Voting Rights Movement. This project required over a year of in-depth research, interviews, and collaboration with the National Park Service. In addition we refined the decade-old master plan and the conceptual plan as a baseline for exhibit development. A deliberate effort was made to focus on the day-to-day activists and community leaders in Dallas, Lowndes and Perry counties.
The final exhibit interprets antithetical perspectives against the backdrop of the struggle of African-Americans to secure full rights as citizens. The narrative is combined with lighting, color, and large scale imagery to immerse the visitor in the story and personal experiences of the struggle for voting rights.
