Client: Brooklyn Historical Society

Project: Personal Correspondents: Photography and Letter Writing in Civil War Brooklyn

Our Role: Fabrication & Installation

Designer: Roger Westerman Design 

Description: We always enjoy working alongside Roger Westerman, and the latest exhibition at the Brooklyn Historical Society in Downtown Brooklyn didn’t prove any different. Encompassing only 400 sq. feet, Personal Correspondents: Photography and Letter Writing in Civil War Brooklyn is a beautiful exhibit on the 3rd floor of the institution’s historic building. We were brought on board to fabricate and install the exhibition’s furniture and graphics, including the cases, a correspondent booth, secretary station, and all graphics. The exhibit reveals the personal stories of Brooklyn soldiers and their families during the American Civil War and highlights some of the hundreds of letters contained in the Museum’s collection. It’ll make you want to pick up a piece of paper and a pen to send a hand-written note to someone you love… good thing we built a station for that!
