A compilation of exhibit design-related web finds

I only have eyes
+ Everyone’s been raving about Doug Aitken’s SONG 1 at the Hirshhorn…because it’s awesome. I’ve visited twice; and would—will—visit at least once more before it closes on May 13. My grainy snapshots don’t do this any justice—you have to experience it in person.

The Titanic
+ If you’ve missed the hubbub, the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking is April 15. Dozens of exhibits about the ship and sinking are opening, including the biggest of them all, in Belfast
+ Also: Fire & Ice at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum; Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, everywhere; Titanic at the South Street Seaport Museum in NY

The Rails
+ The Union Pacific Railroad Museum’s Building America traveling exhibit—in a traveling train car, naturally. The entire museum opens in Iowa in a month.

Exhibit Education
+ Part 1 in a series of articles describing exhibit design, from Mark Walhimer at exhibit planning
+ Blueprint, a guidebook to build your own history museum in the 21st century, from The Museum of the Future

Pinned Inspiration
+ ROLLS installation at the Diesel Denim Gallery
+ Ice ceiling
+ Purple-sided lightboxes
+ German Expressionism at the MoMA
+ San Diego Children’s Museum
