For this exhibit, a tiny, underused gallery and the guitars displayed within it were made
to feel more inviting through use of large scale images of musicians, and creative rethinking
of space constraints.
The number of guitars that could be displayed was greatly increased by turning existing windows of the
gallery into cases, affording views to both sides of guitars, and extending the experience beyond
previous gallery confines.
A timeline of iconic guitars makes associations between artists and guitars, to focus attention on
those who played them, and to humanize the artifacts for a larger audience.
