Washakie Museum — A Perfect Place Exhibit
A Perfect Place explores the three billion years of paleontological history of the Big Horn Basin – an area visible from outer space that contains one of the best and nearly continuous records of life on earth. The site of significant scientific discovery, this area of Wyoming and Montana is the source for many of our nation’s finest dinosaurs and other significant discoveries. Yet, its history had been mostly tucked away at Yale, AMNH and other institutions. This exhibit brings back the story of the Basin’s scientific prominence to its source.
Work included commissioning of original scientific digs, assembling a guest curatorial team of top researchers from many disciplines, all exhibition planning and design, media content and full project coordination. Studio Tectonic’s principal logged over 100 nights in the field over the course of this two year and more than two million USD permanent exhibit.
