Making the Canonical Contemporary
This year-long exhibition explores the triumphs and tragedies of 20th century icons Charles and Anne Lindbergh, spanning six galleries in the Morven Museum. The exhibition examines the continuing relevance of Charles’ historic flight, the kidnapping of the couple’s infant child, and their fall from public adoration to infamy. The design weaves together a multivalent narrative—including images, original artifacts, video clips, and infographics. Full-wall vinyl, custom cases, and projections were all designed to suit the 18th-century museum architecture.
