WINNIPEG — An award for innovative exhibition design and visitor impact has been bestowed on the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
Exhibition design firm Ralph Appelbaum Associates (RAA) was presented with the gold award for “Best Scenography for a Permanent Collection” at the International Design and Communications Awards for museums on Thursday in Quebec City.
RAA is the design firm behind the inaugural exhibitions of the CMHR. The award recognizes that the layout of space is key to making an exhibition a success, with entries judged on spatial organization, display, design and lighting along with digital installations and interactive stations. Creative use of space and an efficient visitor journey were also part of the judging criteria.
The CMHR has won more than 30 international, national and regional awards since 2013.
