SEGD Philly Presents: Exhibit Happy Hour at the Rosenbach

The Rosenbach Museum and Library is home to a collection of nearly 400,000 rare books, manuscripts, and fine and decorative art objects, including some of the best-known literary and historical objects in the world.

With their latest exhibition, Frankenstein & Dracula: Gothic Monsters, Modern Science, they entered uncharted territory – extending the themes in their exhibition into issues of modern medical and scientific ethics. An experimental exhibit and graphic design approach integrates the authors’ thoughts and illuminates the scientific issues and fears of the time. A unique interactive and film elements allow visitors themselves to wrestle with today’s biggest scientific challenges.

Join SEGD over snacks and drinks to visit the exhibition and learn more about how it was put together.

Hear from Judy Guston, Curator and Director of Collections at the Rosenbach Museum, Mary Anne Casey, Designer and Owner, Olive Tree Design, and representatives from Bluecadet, about what it took to curate, design, and produce this exhibition – from caring for objects on loan, to scriptwriting and graphic design, to graphic and case production, to interactive development.
