Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion Exhibit Design
Utile designed the exhibition panels for the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion. The permanent exhibit includes a granite inlay paving map of the Boston Harbor Islands and exhibition panels that feature the photography of Thad Russell, a photography professor at RISD, and maps of eight of the islands that were newly created for the pavilion using the most up-to-date National Park Service map graphic standards.
During the day the primary feature of the kiosks are two 8′-0″ by 12′-0″ map panels. At night the two kiosks are closed by sliding the large map panels across the open doorways of the kiosks, revealing LED panels that are programmed with video art installations. The first installation, Nature Special, has been curated by the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA.
