SYNERGY DESIGN GROUP TO DESIGN ITALIAN-AMERICAN MUSEUM IN WAREHOUSE DISTRICT

Synergy Design Group to Develop American Italian Cultural Center’s
New Museum

Exhibit Design House Will Showcase Italian-American History
in New Orleans, Engage Guests With Multi-Sensory Museum

NEW ORLEANS, LA (August 24, 2018) — Synergy Design Group is proud to announce selection as the exhibit design house behind the new museum display coming spring 2019 to the American Italian Cultural Center (AICC) in New Orleans’ Warehouse District. The museum will document the assimilation of Italian immigrants into American and New Orleanian culture and retention of their own unique traditions through artifacts, works of art, family histories and more. Visitors are invited to view the exhibition upon its completion on the third floor of the AICC at 537 S. Peters Street, New Orleans, LA, 70130.

The museum display will guide visitors through the first arrival of Italian immigrants to New Orleans to present day, showcasing important aspects of Italian-American life along the way. Topics covered in the museum include art, religion, family and World War II. Synergy Design Group will incorporate a mix of audio (voice recordings, music) and visual media (photographs, artifacts, articles) for a multi-sensory guest experience. The AICC “celebrates Italian-American culture past, present and future,” and the new museum display promises to showcase the Italian-American experience in detail and inspire and engage visitors (AICC, n.d.).

Synergy Design Group’s partnership with the AICC began in 2015 when the exhibit design house collaborated with the AICC’s marketing team to develop and install the American Italians in Jazz museum display. The interactive exhibit showcases influential Italian-American jazz musicians, including Louis Prima and Nick LaRocca, and their contributions to the jazz scene in New Orleans. The American Italians in Jazz exhibition is currently open to the public at the AICC Museum from 10 AM – 4 PM Monday through Friday.

Jazzin’ it Up

New Orleans is known around the world for its jazz music. From street corners to concert halls, the sound of music constantly floats through our humid atmosphere. The American Italian Cultural Center wished to celebrate some of the American Italian jazz musicians who made New Orleans groove and asked Synergy for help.

Synergy combined sound, sight, and touch to deliver on a multimedia exhibit display installation complete with LED screens, an interactive kiosk, custom wallpaper and 3D signage. Viewers watch videos and listen to samples of the music as well as listen to interviews of the artists on the interactive stand. Large-format historical images, portraits, and personal anecdotes give exhibit viewers an intimate glimpse into the musicians’ careers and lives. Contemporary red benches provide visitors a place to sit while learning about American Italian jazz history.

The installation at the American Italian Cultural Center sponsored in part by the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation is an example of how Synergy combines the different elements of exhibit design to create a visually captivating, educational and synergistic display.

Remembering Pearl Harbor

d

“Remember Pearl Harbor:” these words resonate in the hearts of all Americans and remind us to be grateful for our security and freedom. In 2016, the World War II Museum commemorated the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, a tragedy that questioned our country’s security and freedom. They enlisted the help of Synergy to create an traveling exhibit that visually depicted the infamous events of December 7, 1941.

The emotion of the attack is portrayed in large-format black and white graphics on two-sided display columns. Images of planes and smoke juxtaposed to stoic portraits of naval officers imparted the chaos of the moment while honoring our soldiers. The columns are lightweight and portable enough for the exhibit to travel, the bases have the museum’s logo embossed in them. Using vertical structures gives the museum ease of reconfigurability so they fit any space.

From exhibit displays to permanent installations at Synergy we use a multitude of elements to make a space come to life. We emphasize design that can be repurposed and reused for future events so our customers get the most out of their investment: whether it is to commemorate a tragic event or to celebrate the beauty of life and freedom.
