Exhibition Design for a College Museum

Our faculty are accomplished professionals who actively work in their field. Adjunct Professor Mark Dohner completed the exhibition design for the Eskenazi Museum of Art, located on the campus of Indiana University, Bloomington. The three-year project is the largest project that Dohner has worked on in his career.

My challenge was to create a re-installation that harmonizes with renowned architect I.M. Pei’s interior as well as show the museum’s art objects to their best advantage.
