Landmark Center

St. Paul, Minnesota

Outhouse was contracted to provide a re-invention of an existing permanent exhibition located in the old Federal Building, now on the National Register. A complete renovation of the existing gallery was necessary to create the new, permanent exhibition entitled, "A Landmark Reclaimed: From Federal Building to Community Icon." The exhibition chronicles the history of Landmark Center and the people who made it the community icon it is today.

Outhouse worked closely with the staff to help redefine the exhibition, both in terms of content and its purpose. Once a pass-through stop on the greater building tour, the exhibition is now the end point for such tours, and fulfills its purpose as a stand-alone exhibition experience as well.

Services Provided:

  • Curatorial Assistance
  • Project Administration
  • Exhibit Fabrication
  • Installation
  • Project Management
