"Anticipating its latest exhibit, The Palace of Wonders, The Walters Art Museum of Baltimore invited us to attract and communicate with children, parents and teachers. We created two pieces: First, for parents, a deck of sherbet-colored cards that are an easy-to-use tool that turns a mundane visit into an adventure in learning. Each card is an exhibit roadmap, bringing focus to individual pieces from the collection with fun facts and quizzes. A convenient thumb-notched sleeve houses the cards making them easy to stow away. Second, for teachers, we designed a School Programs guide that housed a center-stitched poster to display in their classrooms. The poster doubled as a teaching device, helping to engage their students in the museum’s seventeenth-century collection of marvelous objects and art, including bugs, butterflies, beetles and a twelve-foot alligator."
