In December 2019 – January 2020, I had the privilege to be asked to assist with the design of an exhibition held at the Danville Museum of Fine Arts & History in Danville, Virginia. The exhibit was entitled “Camilla Williams,” which showcased the life and talent of Danville native Camilla Williams, a nationally acclaimed opera diva who broke color barriers in the 1940s-1950 by becoming one of the first woman of color to sing at a major American opera house, performing the title tragic role of Cio-Cio San in “Madame Butterfly,” which opened at the New York City Opera on May 15, 1946.
While working with the staff at the museum, I assisted with the design of the over-all project as well as time-line layout design, poster designs and floor layout of the exhibit. I also designed the printed pieces needed for the exhibit. Below are photos of the exhibition as well as some of the printed pieces that were designed for the exhibit.
