Exhibits at Pasadena Museum of History, Autry

famstoriesCarol Caley and Associates designed the logo for “Family Stories: Sharing a Community’s Legacy,” an exhibition at the Pasadena Museum of History. The logo was featured on exhibit signage, postcards and on the museum’s website.

Rare photographs and memorabilia were the focus of the exhibition, which highlighted family groups from Pasadena’s diverse ethnic communities who pioneered the business and social spheres that make Pasadena a unique California city.

We also developed graphics and signage for exhibitions at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage, where we produced designs for “On Gold Mountain: A Chinese American Experience,” the largest exhibit ever created to document the personal histories of Chinese immigrants and their descendants in Los Angeles, five years in the making. We used historical documents, prints and photographs in the work. The exhibit was based on the family history of writer Lisa See. The exhibit traveled to the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

We also created signage and exhibit graphics for “L.A.’s Moving Intersections: Kids Crossing Cultures” at the Autry Children’s Discovery Gallery, where life-size cutouts of children sharing family heirlooms and giant-size maps drawn by fifth-graders were the basis for the designs.
