Passion and Perseverance: Exhibit design for the California Museum
Based on a yearlong reporting project by Capital Public Radio and developed in collaboration with the California Museum in Sacramento, ”Passion and Perseverance: A Year at Encina” explores how the school reflects California’s shifting demographics, education policies, and residential segregation. Through photographs, videos, Instagram posts, and school artifacts, the exhibition challenges the narrative of low-income schools by highlighting the work of tireless teachers and staff who create a safe and supportive campus culture. It also shares the stories of students who work against the odds to make connections and achieve their dreams.
The exhibit is designed by UC Davis Design Professor Tim McNeil in collaboration with exhibition design students Justin Goldwater and Jennifer Place, and curated by Capital Public Radio’s Senior Community Engagement Strategist Jesikah Maria Ross.
On view in the California Museum’s community gallery, “Passion and Perseverance: A Year at Encina” continues through September 2, 2018. For more details on the exhibit, visit here.
