Exhibit Planning and Design
Exhibition planning requires a thoughtful process from design to execution. The Alliance has compiled this set of exhibit planning resources from amongst its offerings as well as those throughout the nonprofit and museum sector.
The Alliance provides a handout from its 2013 annual meeting, which provides exhibit guidelines that help museums set goals and understand what constitutes a green exhibit. The handouts provide tools and indicators for assessing the sustainability of a project using financial, environmental and social impacts.
