The Wilson Hall Exhibit

by Hailey, Tom

Abstract (Summary)
Exhibits found in museums and cultural institutions provide valuable educational opportunities. The first section of this paper describes the best practices for constructing educational exhibits, and details criteria relevant to preservation. The second part of this paper focuses on the creation of "From Organism to Molecule," an historical exhibit chronicling the first 100 years of the Department of Biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Located in the lobby of UNC-CH's Wilson Hall, the exhibit is composed of artifacts, images, and text presented in a largely static format.
