Award-winning invitation for Arctic Museum’s “Pop-Up Museum: Your Favorite Things” event.

The Museum’s invitation to its “Pop-Up Museum: Your Favorite Things” event won first place in the Invitations category and the Museum’s brochure “Spirits of Land, Air, and Water” won first place in the Exhibit Supplementary Materials category. Fifty-seven museums submitted 168 publications to this year’s competition.

“We are gratified by the recognition of the thought, care, and humor that went into developing both pieces,” said Susan Kaplan, director of the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, “and we are thrilled that our colleagues in the museum world chose to recognize our work.”

Both publications were developed by Arctic Museum staff in consultation with Bill Fall of Fall Design. The brochure features Inuit art from the Robert and Judith Toll Collection, photographed by Dean Abraham. Penmor Lithographers printed both pieces.
