Titanic Philadelphians Exhibition

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the Independence Seaport Museum developed an exhibition focusing on the passengers from the Philadelphia area. A key object included a first-class passenger list carried off the ship in the coat pocket of one of the survivors.

One design challenge was that this exhibition was located in the corner of a large boat gallery. We needed to separate this space and employed tactics to make this space feel separate while supporting the key themes and tone of the exhibition. We painted the walls in this area a darker blue color and filled the neighboring wall with a large translucent graphic to enhance the somber feel of the space and help darken the space.
