Children’s Creativity Museum Redesign
Lead the exhibition redesign transforming the Main Gallery and related spaces from Zeum to the Children’s Creativity Museum. This consisted of crafting a sustainable vision, and leading design through opening. Managed teams, budgets, and resources. Resulted in exponential growth in terms of visitation and membership (project images here).
Maria led the exhibition development and design for the rebrand of Zeum and launch of the Children’s Creativity Museum in 2011. Her approach was collaborative, experimental, and incredibly creative. She connected us to a team of local fabricators, designers, and artist who produced an experience that combined our mission with the needs of our expanding audience through flexible platforms designed to evolve through layered content. Maria worked with staff, board, artists, and visitors to transform the museum into an inspirational and inclusive community resource.
