Lindow Man: A bog body mystery at The Manchester Museum has been shortlisted in the 2009 Design Week Awards.
Lindow Man: A bog body mystery has been shortlisted in the Temporary Exhibition Design category. Celebrating creative excellence, the award winners will be announced in March 2009. The exhibition which runs until April 2009, will be assessed against eight other finalists for the quality of its design and execution.
Stephen Booth, Curator of Temporary Exhibitions commented ‘Lindow Man: A bog body mystery challenged museum exhibition design and we are delighted that it has been shortlisted for one of the world’s most prestigious design awards.’
‘The exhibition was designed and built in-house. The advantage of this as a designer, is that you can be involved throughout the whole process and work closely with different departments across the Museum.’
Lindow Man: A bog body mystery explores the mystery of Lindow Man through the voices of seven people. They offer new perspectives on his life and death, presenting a series of viewpoints and experiences which look at what he means to us today.
If a winner, the exhibition will enter the archive for all time and become part of the country’s creative heritage.
