Abstract

HistoryMiami Museum’s newest exhibition, It’s a Miami Thing, opened in celebration of the City of Miami’s 125th birthday. The exhibition displays highlights from the museum’s vast collection of artifacts and archival materials. Over the decades, the museum has collaborated with the community to collect, preserve, and share local history, in particular objects that document the uniqueness of our city.

Come join the archival team as they share their experience from curation and selection of materials, to the layout, design, and installation of the exhibition’s Special Collections featured section. Ashley and Jeremy will share highlights from the exhibition with attendees as well as insight into their most recent project at the museum.

We’ll go in-depth about the exhibition process and also discuss how unique this opportunity was for us, as archival materials are rarely displayed due to their fragile nature and light exposure concerns.
