Lindow Man exhibition wins Temporary Exhibition Design Award

Got back to work today after a week’s leave and the first knock on my office door was Stephen Booth, Curator of Temporary and Touring Exhibitions, proudly holding a copy of Design Week Awards 2009. “Look at page 53” he said. There, as winner of the Temporary Exhibition Design category, was Lindow Man: a Bog Body Mystery. The judges commented that they loved the simplicity and that the exhibition was really well put together. Different layers of information were brought forward which created the concept for the design.

This is brilliant news and everyone who worked on the project, but especially Jeff Horsley, Head of Exhibitions and Presentation, and Stephen Booth, Curator of Temporary and Touring Exhibitions can feel justly proud of the award. What a wonderful way to come back to work. I’ll see if I can post a photograph of the award on the Blog shortly.
