A compilation of exhibit design-related web finds
+ “…The abandoned Tremont Street Subway tunnel, which runs underneath Boston Common…becomes a network of underground cultural venues, including a theater, a cinema, art galleries, and a ‘media-infused trolley museum.'” From the winning proposal for the SHIFTboston Ideas Competition.

+ How Different Types of Museums Approach Participation, from Museum 2.0.
+ Aquarium Design: Top 10 Trends, from object|IDEA.
