Art Direction and Design, Memphis Museums Incorporated, Memphis, TN from 1983-1988

My first work as a professional artist and designer. Oversaw a departmental in-house art production studio for Memphis Museums Foundation. Produced large scale programmed multimedia presentations for educational and entertainment purposes.

Thirteen of these were marketed worldwide to over 300 colleges, universities, schools, and museums while I was there. I had full charge of the art department, photographic facilities, development and maintenance of slide archives. Responsible for print media and marketing materials design, show sales production. This endeavor was so successful it had to be incorporated into a private foundation as it endangered the umbrella department's non-profit status.
