Boston Public Library Home Front: Boston And The Civil War - Character Documentary Stations

The Boston Public Library hired C&G Partners to create a new exhibition about ten real individuals from the Boston area during the Civil War. Ranging from nurses to soldiers, abolitionists to authors, each person profiled has a remarkable and memorable history. The exhibit project included a series of artifact-rich alcoves, overhead quote banners, large-scale cropped portraits, and a series of motion graphic mini-documentaries presented in gilded frames. The stations present short programs of image-driven, Ken Burns-style surveys of these notable and brave Bostonians.
