        When planning an exhibit the first step is to choose the subject. To do this, we must think about 
  • how the exhibit will relate to the Museum's mission 
  • the goals of the exhibit program 
  • what the Museum has in its collections 
  • other practical considerations such as costs, scheduling, transportation, etc.

We chose to explore the art of Richard Hunt for several reasons.  

  • He has a reputation as one of Illinois' top sculptors working today. 
  • It had been twenty years since we last exhibited his work
  • The exhibit would appear at the Chicago Art Gallery during a city-wide sculpture event and then travel to our Springfield facility.
After identifying the subject of the exhibit, the curator planned the physical exhibit.
