Project Spotlight: Maritime Heritage Center Exhibit
With only two months of production time, Creative Resources Group integrated design and multi-media elements to transform a bare room at the Maritime Heritage Center into a simulated research vessel. Steel walls and portholes looked out onto sanctuary species, while visitors interacted with touch screen kiosks, video theater presentations, a lighted 3D map, dioramas, and etched plates for art rubbings. Quickly after the exhibit’s opening, it became a major destination for the thousands of whale watch passengers and other tourists who visited Gloucester each year.
