Fabricating Professional Exhibits for Under $500 Tamara Barnes, Historical Society of Michigan

Building professional-looking exhibits on a shoe-string budget has actually gotten easier in recent years with the many advances in graphic design and printing technologies. The presenter will discuss several low-cost options for designing and mounting displays. Using examples from her experiences working in small museums, Barnes will take participants through multiple project budgets—all under $500.  Participants will also have a chance to practice several tricks of the trade, including foam-core mounting and vinyl letter application.

To register for a workshop, call (800) 692-1828 or visit our Online Registration page.

*No refunds within a week before each workshop. Your canceled registration fee, however, can be transferred to another workshop in the series within one year of the date of your original workshop date.
