Housed in a single room off of the main foyer of Province House, this permanent, bilingual exhibit only occupies 500 square feet. Working with the interpretation experts on this project, we took the considerable amount of potential content and boiled it down to find the primary messages for this exhibit. This made it possible to highlight the important concepts of democracy that Joseph Howe was famous for promoting.
The exhibit structures were designed to blend with existing architectural features including the trim features of the interior of the building.
