"my Verse is Alive

Client: Emily Dickinson Museum

Budget: $25,000 

The main goal of the exhibition was to explain the posthumous publication of Emily Dickinson’s poetry. The museum had settled on the idea of organizing the exhibition around the desks of three main characters in the story: Emily Dickinson, Mabel Todd (family friend), and Martha Dickinson Bianchi (Emily’s niece). Setting the stage for the drama that unfolded, “The Player’s Wall,” a panoramic centerpiece exhibit, introduces all of the players visually, biographically, and through their own words.
