"Taking Flight the World of Birds"

Proto Productions interpreted the design concepts, fabricated and installed this 3,000 square foot exhibit in the William and Eleanor Hageboeck Hall of Birds. Proto engineered modular components to be fabricated and then re-assembled in a limited access gallery. These serpentine cases with a mahogany finish were fabricated to match the existing museum cases. Proto, also, updated the existing cases by introducing label rails. The exhibit was further enhanced by interpretive graphics featuring nearly all aspects of birds and their significance to humans. About 1,000 birds and numerous eggs from their 150 year old collection are housed within these cases. Interactive displays including rotating flips and an electro-mechanical bird wing were fabricated to more fully engage the visitors.
