As Director of Exhibits at Portland Children's Museum (2016-2020), I led the Drip City project team to create conceptual drawings, 3-D renderings, full-scale prototypes, as well as detailed design and construction drawings. The exhibit development process included a 19-person Community Advisory Committee, front-end evaluation with members and visitors, as well as involvement from Gyroscope Inc., Museum staff, on-site Opal School students, and community partners. This project was awarded a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services for $250K in 2019.
"You can kind of go free with water. I kind of feel like water is unbreakable. Because once you put your hand in water, it keeps going.” - Lois, Age 9
