Who doesn't like free stuff? Here are links to some great exhibit design resources that come from the POW! website:
A constantly updated compendium of resources for museum design and exhibit fabrication (including websites and contact information.) Need to find fake food, giant sequins, or adaptive devices? Check out the GBER List! And contact me if you have a resource you think should be added to the list.
The idea for the Exhibit Cheapbooks started during sessions at the annual Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Conference with the purpose of sharing "cheap" exhibit ideas and creating a written record of how to replicate these simple and successful exhibit components.
The four Exhibit Cheapbooks have always celebrated the "sharing" nature of museums. You will find varied exhibit ideas from museum colleagues from around the world inside each volume. Sincere thanks to everyone who has shared their ideas and expertise! And special thanks to ASTC for allowing all the Exhibit Cheapbooks material to be shared freely online.
Check out these interesting and informative video conversations with museum professionals from around the world. Topics run the gamut from museum management, community engagement, digital exhibits, and more! Click the link above for the video gallery or go directly to the POW! YouTube site.
You can also find downloadable exhibit articles and other museum exhibit design resources by clicking over to the main resource page on the POW! website.
