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.

Traditional material, contemporary craft

Flat and three-dimensional artifacts were showcased in wall mounted cases, large-scale floor cases, and minimal plexiglass wall mounting mechanisms. We used solid mahogany, spray-painted brass metal rods, and commonly available connecting mechanisms to achieve an elevated design that evoked the trusses of the airplane that Charles Lindbergh had flown.
