Stacey Marie Garcia
From my blog (The Art Reviewer) June 8, 2010
Stacey Marie Garcia gave me the rare privilege to talk about exhibition design. Marie Grace design for the Morikami Museum exhibitions space in 2007 to 2008. The exhibition space bring light tones of illumination on the objects and enlighten knowledge through informational text to the viewer. From the documentation photos, the design was clean and the objects seemed to have a stream line logical organization. The ceiling installation looks beautiful and the curator's choice of contemporary toyish objects is a nice touch. The exhibitions have a great use of walk around space. I think an exhibition designer can make or break the display of interesting and important objects. Marie Garcia seems to be good at this and I hope this is not just a one time opportunity, but a budding of a possible career. Marie Garcia's website also features photography and paintings that illustrate.
