My youngest daughter, Heidi, is an exhibit designer at the Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. First she got a BA in Fine Arts, then a masters in Architecture to qualify for the position. Needless to say, I am a proud mother. Here is the sign to a new exhibit, Time and Navigation, to open in late March at the museum. The sign was designed by Heidi and the graphics are by her co-worker, Ashley.
This is a very large sign to hang at the entrance of the exhibit. Heidi says it is a huge glockenspiel with parts (submarine, ship, plane, etc) that light up to grab your attention and draw you into the exhibit.
About 20 years ago I made a quilt that reminds me of Heidi's sign. Here is my quilt with a Mariner's Compass center, stars and celestial print borders.
