Project: Traveling Education Exhibits

Estimated Cost $20,800

Traveling exhibits are an important component for the Great Basin National Park Foundation to acquire in order to more efficiently and effectively educate the general public and school-age children about the Great Basin National Park and the Great Basin physiographic region: their location, ecosystems, climate, history, geology and outstanding recreational opportunities. Through these educational efforts, the visibility of the park and the Great Basin would be enhanced and promoted. Both promotional and educational activities are primary elements within the Foundation's mission statement and strategic plan.

To effectively reach across the vast geographic area of the Great Basin and target major population centers, the purchase and production of three identical traveling exhibit kits is proposed. One exhibit kit would be housed in the Salt Lake City area, one in Reno/Carson City and one in Las Vegas. Each area would have a small tabletop kit and a large curved floor display.

Small Tabletop Kit:

Can easily travel in a car from place to place

Light weight enough so the kit can be carried and set up easily by one person

Composed of multiple elements that could be used individually in small areas

Provides a professional visual quality at any venue indoors or outdoors

Graphic Design:

Design will be necessary to develop a uniform look so the images all work together, to convey the appropriate messages, to photograph or purchase digital HD images with appropriate resolution for enlarging and to work with printer for accurate layout and color reproduction. These same designs would then be used for brochures and other collateral materials.
