(To be completed early 2020). Barrie Projects has been key player in the development of the first official United States Olympic Museum since its inception in 2013. Barrie Projects did the Feasibility Study for the Colorado Springs based facility. As the project has progressed, Barrie Projects has led the selection process for the museum’s architectural and exhibit design teams. Currently, the Barrie Projects team is working on the development of the museums content and exhibit design. The museum is scheduled to open in 2019.
(2017). Barrie Projects served as Project Manager for the development of a permanent exhibition at the Cleveland History Center honoring the lives of politicians Carl and Louis Stokes. The exhibition was the culmination of year-long, city-wide celebration of the Stokes brothers’ careers, celebrating Carl Stokes’ historic election as Mayor of Cleveland in 1967.
(To be completed summer 2018). Barrie Projects is serving as the Project Consultant for the soon to open Museum at the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology. The CCHP houses the largest archives of psychological material in the United States. When completed in 2018, the Center’s 6000 sq. ft. museum will present a history of the profession of psychology starting with the development of humane asylums in the 19th century. The museum will include exhibits on some of the key psychology experiments and studies conducted over the last 150 years.
(2017). The Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society wanted to create a core exhibit that would present a history of Northeast Ohio (The Western Reserve). Under Barrie Projects’ leadership an underused lobby space was transformed into a dramatic 6000 SF exhibit “Cleveland Starts Here.” The exhibit uses film, interactives and striking design to tell the city’s story. Central to the experience is a 70 foot long, 20 foot high “Cabinet of Curiosities” filled with artifacts, historic images and A/V footage, all from the Center’s 1 million piece collection of artifacts and archives.
(2017-2018). Barrie Projects was engaged by the Cleveland Public Library to develop an exhibition around their extensive collection (4000 objects) of Superman memorabilia. The resulting 6000 sq. ft. exhibition explored the creation of the Superman character by two Cleveland teenagers–Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster–in 1938 and the impact of their creation has had on pop culture for almost 80 years.
