Abstract
This case study examines the curatorial challenges of producing a very large exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History from 1999 to 2003. This is an insider’s look at how a cross-functional exhibition team worked to produce a compelling new exhibition. Among the issues addressed are: development of a theme; choice and use of artifacts; presentation organization and techniques; issues of truth, authenticity and accuracy in history exhibitions; and practical issues of exhibition team organization and contract management.
