Making it in NYC: The Era of New Manufacturing, an exhibition about the resurgence of local manufacturing in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, opens this Friday, May 16th, at Gallery92 in BLDG92, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center. We are currently installing our exhibition design that displays objects representing the work of 30 local makers and businesses.

More than 70 interlocking, perforated and folded panels made from aluminum composite function as 3D pegboards that encourage visitors to pick up and test the products on display.
