Organized by the Museum’s Director and Chief Curator Valerie Steele, the Exhibition puts together 80 ensembles starting from the 18th Century to the present. Working for the first time with a specific color as an inspiration for design, it was essential to select a strong backdrop to frame the pink objects. The initial sketch concept communicates a vast sea of charcoal grays and blacks with punctuated splashes of pink that appear to float within the atmosphere. To accentuate the color further, a specular black surface material was utilized for the design of a 15’ high by 15’ wide louvered screen that anchors specific platforms. These slatted and angled backdrops both pick up the pink color and open and close views across the space from various vantage points to create a dynamic experience. The screens were expertly lit by Eric Steding of Shop Studios.
