The American Alliance of Museum's 32nd Annual Excellence in Exhibition Competition recognizes outstanding achievements in the exhibition format across all types of museums, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, and any other non-commercial institutions offering exhibitions to the public. We’re thrilled to announce that Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Dr. Jane Goodall has been selected as one of two overall winners this year!
In partnership with National Geographic Museum, the exhibit celebrates the 60th anniversary of Jane Goodall's ground-breaking discoveries and the contributions she has made to the world during her incredible career.
One goal of this exhibit was to inspire ways that we can help our planet, and we brought environmental awareness to visitors with a digital experience called the Tree of Hope. As individuals pledged to make changes to their lifestyle, their names were added as leaves to an ever-growing tree that became full and vibrant—showing that many small efforts can create change in our environment when done as a group.
We could not be more proud to have had the opportunity for contribution and collaboration with Nat Geo's amazing team on this incredible subject matter and message of hope!
