How to Create an Exhibit on a Shoestring Budget


This ebook is designed as a guideline for a museum studies student, museum intern, or newly-minted museum professional who is about to embark on the wonderful journey of creating a history museum exhibition!

Curator Kim Kenney shares her thoughts about exhibition design, what works for her, and how she does what she does within a small budget. This ebook covers each major step toward completing a successful exhibition and is completely illustrated with photographs of Kim's work.

"How to Create an Exhibition on a Shoestring Budget" features chapters on Selecting a Topic, Choosing Artifacts and Photographs, Writing Exhibit Labels, Basics of Good Exhibit Design, Planning Exhibit Based Programs, Funding Your Project, and Getting the Word Out.

A special Appendices section contains all the tools Kim uses to create an exhibit, including an Exhibition Checklist, Object Possibilties Chart, Exhibit Section Worksheet, Guest Curator Agreement, Basic Supply List, and Samples of Title Panels, Introductions, Section Labels, and Object Labels.

It is important to keep creating new temporary exhibitions to keep your audience interested in your museum. Not every idea has to be an expensive one! This ebook shows you how to use your own creativity to make the most of a small budget.

A great exhibition is driven by solid research and interesting artifacts and photographs, which most museums already have. A glitzy exhibition might actually lack substance. Providing an in-depth look at your museum's collection can be done without spending much money at all.

"How to Create an Exhibit on a Shoestring Budget" is written in a conversational tone, providing real life advice for small historical societies and museums. The first-person perspective explains what works and what doesn't work to write, design and market a great exhibit.

If you're about to create your first exhibition, or just curious about what goes on "behind the scenes" in a museum, this ebook is for you!
