Exhibition Designer, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas from 11/89 - 09/96

This one's hard to capture in a blurb. I designed big, detailed exhibitions. That means I researched and built and prepared 6-10 exhibitions yearly. I supervised the overall exhibition program and production assistants, including production planning, didactic materials, and implementation of museum educational goals. That includes art direction, photography, graphic design. And oh yes, I was LAN administrator, and provided Macintosh training and support to staff. I was also an art courier and on-site staff representative for travelling exhibitions.

Other responsibilities: Maintain internationally known permanent collection of Spanish Masterworks and sculpture garden. Interacted frequently with world class institutions, which was great fun: (The Prado, MOMA, Met, Library of Congress, Marlborough and so on). Frequent consultant to other departments on design and computing matters.
