Charles McGhee-Hassrick ’86 writes: “I am currently working as a freelance Exhibit Developer and Designer. One of my recent project just received its 17th award. The project was Science Storms, a 26,000 square foot, $38 million exhibit on the physics and chemistry of natural phenomena. Science Storms is a permanent exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, IL. Here are some of the awards we have won:

1. National Association for Museum Exhibition’s 23rd annual Excellence in Exhibition Award (American Association of Museums highest honor.
2. AAM Gold MUSE Awards for multimedia and interactive technology.

… and many many more.

The exhibit was a fantastic project to be a part of, and we had an outstanding design and development team. Currently, I am working on two traveling exhibits that are smaller in size, but no less exciting. The first is for MythBusters, and the second is for Sherlock Holmes.”
