Exhibit Design Toolbox: JC Whitney

Since I'm speaking at the SEGD Exhibition and Environments Symposium in Detroit (my hometown and STILL the Motor City!) this week, I thought I'd highlight a great auto-related resource that's often overlooked by exhibit designers, namely the JC Whitney catalog.

JC Whitney is a great resource for odd little bearings or mirrors, as well as low voltage lights and accessories.  And, since all the items were designed for automotive use, they hold up well to the pounding museum visitors can often give exhibits.  JC Whitney's website can also be a good place to find speciality tools or paints that can be adapted to exhibit design.

So spend some cash to upgrade your exhibit "clunkers" by investigating the JC Whitney site.
