Exhibit Design & Museum-Related Projects: Skirball Cultural Center

Leonard Bernstein at 100

April 26–September 2, 2018

On the centennial of his birth, this exhibition is a celebration of the life and work of Leonard Bernstein (1918–1990), the great American composer and conductor who dedicated his life to making classical music a vibrant part of American culture. Presented by the Grammy Museum, this traveling exhibition required many adjustments to the display, including re-production of graphics and elements to fit the Skirball space. Additional multimedia elements enhanced every aspect of the design.
