Green Museums & Green Exhibits: Communicating Sustainability through Content and Design
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this master's project was to investigate the dynamic relationship between sustainability and museum administration in order to define what it might mean for a museum and its exhibitions to be green. Through an extensive literature review and three case studies of leading green museums, I set out to understand how sustainability might be integrated into museums, how the roles and characteristics of museums defined their role in a sustainable society, how exhibits could communicate sustainability to museum visitors, and how to produce exhibitions using green design. The findings of this master's research project informed a set of recommendations that provide practical instruction for museums, or any other arts or cultural organizations, to consider while developing green exhibits.
