NSBD Teens Reflect on Exhibit Design

After sifting through dozens of images our curation team was able to select some of the final images that will be included in our exhibit next month. After the images were selected and printed our exhibit design team mapped out where the images will be placed within the exhibit space. While working on the layout of the exhibit here is what some of our teens had to say:

It’s really interesting to hear other people’s opinion about the layout of the project. Collaborating with others makes the project more fun.  Sheba B.

I didn’t realize that it would take this long. Since we have so many images to work with, selecting the best one is hard.   Trevor F.

Drafting the Next Stop:Brooklyn/Dakar exhibit layout

With less than three months remaining until we launch our Next Stop: Brooklyn/Dakar exhibit our teens decided that it was time to begin finalizing our ideas for the exhibit layout.
Individually we came up with a total of 15 different layout ideas! Each layout had its own a unique approach to presenting Senegalese culture to the public, but unfortunately we had to narrow it down to one. After a few hours of collaborative effort our teens finally came up with one amazing idea which they proudly shared with Marcos Stafne, the Director of Education, at Brooklyn Children’s Museum.
