Create Space is a series of exhibit ‘carts’ that have visitors engage with art through more senses than sight. A mobile uses a moustache-shaped armature as a basis for balancing random soft sculpture bits. An art cart can be loaded up with supplies in different media ready to serve as home base for today’s art lessons. A beatbox lets kids combine sounds at different tempos and volumes to produce their own unique music piece. A shadow puppet theatre has kids entertaining themselves with good old-fashioned shadow puppets. And all the carts were designed to nest together in storage so the space can be converted to a special events space as needed.

Georgia O’Keeffe, the iconic American painter, often made her own frames for her artwork. This traveling exhibit explored her aesthetic sense and allowed the viewer to see a wide range of her works, including a collection of photographs made by her husband, Alfred Stieglitz. As registrar and fine arts courier for the exhibition at 5 venues with 100+ pieces of art from 31 lenders, coordinating all aspects of the exhibition at each venue was a challenge!
