Cleveland Starts Here

(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.
