Design for a Living World
The Field Museum, Chicago
May 2011 – November 2011

Before leaving the Field, I began project management of this 4,000 sq. ft. traveling exhibition featuring 200 objects made from sustainable materials and designed by 10 of the world’s leading industrial, graphic, and fashion designers. The exhibition was organized by The Nature Conservancy and originated at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum in New York. For the Field Museum exhibition, TNC commissioned Christien Meindertsma to create a new object, 49 Prairie Plants from specimens collected from the Nachusa grasslands.
