The Lavish Prince Regent at Rienzi
Exhibition Design
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston–Rienzi

Exhibition design for a space inside the MFAH’s House Museum, Rienzi. A historic home with many architectural elements that cannot be altered, the challenge was coming up with creative ways to bring exhibition design into the space. Scrims were used to cover the windows and print large scale graphics that were backlit using outside light along with text panels and intro text. The Lavish Prince Regent is a survey of objects from King George IV’s time as Prince Regent of the nation. During this time, he built the Royal Pavilion in Brighton using the “Regency Style” that was a mixture of the antique and exotic. Worked with vintage images of plans of the Royal Pavilion and an elegant type used on large text panels to evoke a sense of place and context.
