Behind the Exhibit

It seems like much longer, but it hasn’t even been a year since our exhibit SPOMa: Spokane Modern Architecture, 1948–73 ended its 10-month run at the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture. SPOMa was unlike any of helveticka’s previous exhibit work, requiring a level of research, writing, design, fabrication, and curating duties that were unprecedented in their scope. And that doesn’t count the short documentary we produced. For those of you who wonder what it’s like to go through this process, we created a short film with a little help from Eric Galey, multimedia specialist at Eastern Washington University; filming and editing by Seth Weber; and music composed by Daniel Forbes and Sean Burgett. Special thanks to architect and historian Glenn Davis and MAC senior curator of history Marsha Rooney for participating.
