"Rockstyle" at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

Bronze
2001

Client: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum

Squeezing the costume artifacts of rock and roll idols into the exhibit space at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was a challenge that required doubling them up in a two-level structure accessed by ramps. Visitors "ramped up" into the show and traveled halfway between the two levels. Costumed mannequins were displayed on planes that tilted, inferring the dynamic quality of rock music. This was a case of cheap chic as the inexpensive materials and construction made it affordable.
