Serving as an exhibition design consultant to develop plans for updates to the Museum's core exhibition, "History, Heritage and Hope." This work is happening alongside plans for other capital improvements to the Museum's building, and Walker's focus is primarily on updates to the gallery's lighting infrastructure alongside planning updates to the exhibition's graphics.
Walker recently completed management of the exhibition's national tour on behalf of Museum of the Moving Image. The tour started at the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle in 2017 and then went to 9 additional museums across the country. Walker designed the original exhibition for travel, and worked with each museum on their design and logistics plans, coordinated the MoMI team's review and approvals, and managed the team needed onsite for the installation and press events leading to the opening.
In addition to ongoing management of the exhibition, Walker was engaged separately by Maryland Center for History and Culture to design their installation of the exhibition, and assist with preparation of their galleries, and then manage the installation as usual for Museum of the Moving Image.
