Some howling good coverage of “Dogs! A Science Tail” by NBC4 Los Angeles – KNBC.

…there’s no need to woof nor howl if you feel as though your life could use more Fido-style learning and Lassie-fun facts…

How did ‘one of the most successful interspecies partnerships of all time’ develop? The exhibit tells the story in an engaging way for both adults and young visitor alike.

Here’s a fun time lapse video of Washington D.C.’s oldest synagogue moving down the street on a frigid January day to its new and final home as part of the Capital Jewish Museum. Evidence Design is proud to be a part of this exciting project!

Crosscut, an independent, non-profit electronic journal serving the Pacific-Northwest, posted this lovely article on the development of the New Burke.

The new 110,000 sq. ft. museum will blur traditional lines between labs, collections and public gallery spaces towards a destination that invites the public to share the knowledge and activities of scientists and ethnologists, and celebrates the nature and culture of the Pacific Northwest. This daring paradigm is being tested internally by the Burke’s staff through their temporary exhibit: Testing, Testing 1,2,3. Evidence Design is incorporating the knowledge and feedback gathered by this effort to further inform final design.  We are incredibly appreciative of the work and dedication of our collaborators at the Burke!

DOGS! A Science Tail made an appearance at this year’s ASTC Conference. Evidence Design is finishing up the final details for this new 7,000 square foot traveling exhibition for the California Science Center. Numerous volunteers attended the ASTC booth, including a physically-challenged woman with her service dog, who displayed videos of the amazing tasks her furry companion does for her on a daily basis. Partner Shari Berman enjoyed a conference break with the adorable service dogs.

The progress continues at an impressive pace… the New Burke now has soaring multi-story windows and beautiful wood siding. We can’t wait to see these spaces filled with art, artifacts, Burke staff and guests buzzing with activity and joy. See the most recent images and video on the Burke’s construction web page.

In January, EVD took our first hard hat tour of the New Burke. At that point, one could literally “see through the walls.” It was very exciting to navigate the columns, studs, rebar, and newly poured cement in the emerging building, although it took a lot of imagination to understand what goes where!

During our April Workshop we took a second walk through the new museum building – it’s come a long way in three months! Now you can really appreciate the gallery spaces, floor-through skylights, and views from various windows.

This year, we are especially grateful for our profession.

We celebrate our colleagues in the museum world who work tirelessly to promote dialogue, knowledge, creativity and compassion in their communities.

May the new year bring you peace and joy.

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County was recently profiled on Treasures of New York, a local PBS documentary series.  The episode features interviews with educators and survivors with whom we collaborated to create the small but powerful core exhibition, one of Evidence Design’s earliest projects. It is wonderful to see the Center thriving with robust programming and new artifacts that provide visceral evidence of the horrific events of the Holocaust. We congratulate the HMTC on its continued efforts to combat prejudice and intolerance and are very proud to have played a role in this important work. The episode may be found on the PBS Website.

We are delighted to announce that Science Storms was named one of the twenty most influential exhibit designs of this century by the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD). The groundbreaking exhibit received a 2011 SEGD Merit Award, among numerous recognitions, and continues to draw crowds and accolades six years after its opening. We are immensely proud of our work with the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago (MSI), an institutional leader in the creation of innovative, compelling exhibit experiences. In fact, three exhibits at MSI were recognized by SEGD as most influential in the last 16 years: Science Storms, U-505, and YOU! The Experience. CONGRATULATIONS!

After everybody got a few hours sleep, the move continued this morning. We now have ET-94 in its temporary storage location beside the Pavilion housing Endeavour, although the movers still need to disconnect and remove the dollies from the strongback (will be done tomorrow). Permanent fence will go up Tuesday, then we will begin restoring the tank so that it can take its place in the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center supporting Endeavour.
