Museum Projects

A selected listing of some of my recent and major museum projects:

“The Art of War”
National Constitution Center, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, 2010

An exhibition of military art, done by combat artists, from the First World War to the conflicts of today. This had national coverage both in news articles and television presentations.

Guest curator, technical advisor, and liaison with US Army Center of Military History

Reference contacts:   Chief Center of Military History & Vice President Steve Frank, NCC

“The National Infantry Museum”
Fort Benning Georgia, 2008-2010

Involvement in this extensive and world class facility included: technical advice and fabrication of uniform and accoutrements for over 30 life size figures created by Studio EIS.  The bulk of this portion of my involvement was in the 2009 time frame but actions continued into last year. I went on site to provide a written review of the galleries and operation for both the museum staff and the foundation planning team, done at the request of the director of the facility.

Reference contacts:  Director of the National Infantry Museum, Mr. Michael Criscillis and Studio EIS of New York City.

“The Flag Center”
Santa Cruz California, 2009

My tasking was to review the collection’s historical colors/flags and all related materials of this the largest collection of flags in North America.  I worked with the curator of collections in placing the items into specific categories and then in placing a value on each artifact.  This action was to both review the identification and update the appraisal of this vast collection.

the Pentagon, Wash. D.C. 2008

Involvement in the design, story line, manikin and artifact selection during both pre production and installation periods.  I also oversaw the manufacture of the bulk of the historical uniforms and equipment for over 20 historical figures.  My responsibility was the design, fabrication, and installation of these components prior to the opening.
