Meet an Experience Designer

It takes a lot of work – and a lot of people – to make a new museum exhibit. Peggy Monahan is one of the people behind our new Design Lab exhibition opening in June, where museum visitors can engage in activities, experiments and challenges.

Peggy, the exhibits projects creative director at NYSCI, was recently interviewed for Hand to Hand, the quarterly journal of the Association of Children’s Museums. In the article, she explains what she does: “I’m an educator and an experience designer, and my medium is exhibitions. I don’t design exhibit furniture or come up with colors or graphics. I arrange experiences, crafting them into what I hope will be transformative experiences that become implanted in people’s lives.”

Read more about Peggy in the Hand to Hand article “In Support of Things that Live in the Cracks.” And get ready to experience Design Lab this June!
