Three Personalities, One State

Andrew Merriell and Associates has just finished designing over 15,000 square feet of exhibit space at the Idaho State Historical Society Museum. The permanent installation will include an introductory overview to the state, along with exhibits highlighting the three distinct geographic and cultural areas that make up the state of Idaho. Through the use of interactive and ambient media and key representative collections objects, visitors will engage with the characters and events that shaped the state.

International Folk Art Exhibits

Since 2011, Andrew Merriell & Associates has partnered with Santa Fe’s Museum of International Folk Art, providing design of six exhibitions. Three of these exhibitions have occupied the museum’s Gallery of Conscience, a space that explores the intersection of folk art and social issues. Three others have showcased objects from the museum’s collections.

Gallery of Conscience exhibits are The Art of Survival, showing folk art that emerged from natural disasters worldwide; The Art of Gaman, art made in World War II era camps where the United States detained Japanese-American citizens; and Negotiate, Navigate, Innovate, investigating market pressure on indigenous art forms.

Other exhibits are Young Brides, Old Treasures, an exhibit of Macedonian wedding dresses, Amish Quilts, and Crafting Memory, folk art related to political strife in 1960s Peru.
