"What Is A Decoy?" Gallery Enhancement
Havre de Grace Decoy Museum
This project will produce a complete enhancement of the interpretive experience for visitors to the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum. The "What is a Decoy?" exhibition gallery will be transformed into a new and enticing space, connecting the museum's theme of "working decoys" and regional carvers, to the Bay-wide themes. Nine interconnected exhibit story-lines, will use maps, photographs, historic prints, artifacts and low tech-interactive components to engage all age groups. The resulting gallery will be a well planned arrangement of display units and graphics that helpf visitors relate the economic and cultural values of decoy carving to the Bay's ecological importance to waterfowl and other species.
