Angelo Interpretive Wall Graphic

I was hired by Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation to create a wall graphic in the special exhibition Tenacity: Women in Jamestown and Early Virginia at the Jamestown Settlement museum.

The graphic served as a visual aid to an adjacent case where the Ferrar Papers — rare documents on loan from the United Kingdom — were on display. The documents were enlarged for the wall graphic, with magnifying glasses to show guests that Angelo’s name is on both. There was also a blurb to educate guests about light damage and it’s effect on artifacts.

The repurposing of this previously empty wall boosted emphasis on the Ferrar Papers, on display for the first time in America. This emphasis was crucial because after the exhibit closed, the papers had to return to storage for 10–27 years.
