Other Museums in New York:

While at the museum take notes on one exhibit currently on display or an exhibit from the permanent collection. Take the opportunity to collect some information on the museum, the artists involved, or the overall exhibition (brochures, existing printed materials, etc.). While creating your campaign there is one added item of difficulty – you will create your own imagery that reflects the essence of a current show, an artist's work being exhibited, or the theme of a permanent collection.

Next week bring some ideas to class and any information you gathered. You will not be asked to do sketches for next week, sketches will be shared the following class. The final project should be executed in it's final form in InDesign, but you can use Photoshop or Illustrator to modify or create your imagery.

Next week we will begin the tutorial in InDesign and I will take a few minutes to meet with each group to discuss their ideas.
