Bark at the Moon Graphics worked with The University of Akron and The Archives of the History of American Psychology on the design and development of a 1300 sq. ft. gallery located on the college campus. The project, which required four months to complete, started in the basement of the Polsky Building where the archives were originally stored. The Bark at the Moon team reviewed and photographed hundreds of priceless archives as part of the process to determine which would be featured in the gallery. Once the archives were cataloged, we developed a floor plan which detailed the flow of the gallery and location of each display. We then selected paint colors for the gallery and brought in carpenters to construct several free walls in the display area. Production also included the design and fabrication of custom display podiums, and a 10' x 12' illuminated acrylic case located at the entrance of the gallery that holds close to 30 psychological archives. Video monitors are integrated into the gallery displays which provide visitors with an in-depth view of several historic experiments. There's also a display featuring Sigmund Freud home movie footage. In addition to the design and fabrication of the gallery space, Bark at the Moon also installed the entire display.
