The coincide with the 2015 International Museums Day, the Wireless Hill Museum opened Home Front, War Front. The exhibition examines how the City of Melville lived through World War I and World War II.
Utilising colours from the WWII period, Creative Spaces designed the temporary exhibition around three ‘hubs’ with the themes of Community, Domestic and War Front. Block colours were used in each area, both on the floors and walls, while mobile-style graphics introduced movement into the space. An audio visual presentation was also commissioned for the exhibition, using the Museum’s collection of images and oral histories.
This project was completed in May 2015.
“Working with Creative Spaces has again been a wonderfully creative and productive experience. The staff are a dynamic and very talented team and they achieved top results whilst working to strict deadlines in difficult conditions, as the building was undergoing extensive refurbishment at the same time. Additional small side projects cropped up in the final weeks of the project and the team were able to assist on every occasion by providing design support/production at very short notice. Exhibition installation was completed 2 days ahead of time with a minimum of fuss, taking a lot of stress out of the final week of the project for my staff. I wish the Creative Spaces team well in future projects and look forward to see what magic they will come up with next!”
