Congrats to the Levine Museum of the New South and lead exhibition developer Darcie Fohrman (in collaboration with the in-house team and consultants from Morris Design, Melloweb Productions, AC&M, and Brad Larson Media)! The Southeastern Museum Conference named their ¡NUEVOlution: Latinos and the New South! exhibition as the winner of three awards in their annual exhibition and technology competitions.
¡NUEVOlution! received the top “Excellence in Exhibitions” Gold Award for exhibits with budgets over $100,000. In the SEMC Technology Competition, ¡NUEVOlution! earned Silver Awards for “Gallery Installation” and for “Campaign.” This is Darcie’s third award-winning project with the Levine Museum of the New South, creating exhibitions that are catalysts for community engagement.
The museum is extending the exhibit through November 27 to accommodate group tours and dialogue requests and further host the community and visitors.
After November, ¡NUEVOlution! will travel to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, where it is scheduled to open in January 2017, over the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend.
