New Orleans Jazz Museum
RWD worked with the New Orleans Jazz Museum to design a temporary exhibit that celebrates the life and legacy of American singer, songwriter, bandleader, and trumpeter Louis Prima. The vibrant exhibition coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Jazz and Heritage Festival, and encompassed 1,500 square feet of gallery space. It included performance costumes, records, sheet music, jewelry, and references to Prima’s work with Disney in eye-catching, bright displays.
RWD also incorporated multiple interactives, including a listening station, dance floor, and karaoke booth. The listening station allows multiple visitors to enjoy Prima’s records through headphones. The dance floor includes instructional videos, encouraging guests to let loose and engage with Prima’s art. The karaoke booth doubles as an isolated recording booth, so visitors can interact with the music and karaoke performances can be recorded.
