Museums and Exhibits 1993-1999

LJP produced the audio/visual programs for museums every year between 1993 and 1999. We got our start working with professor Jackie Peterson on Sacred Encounters: Father De Smet and the Indians of the Rocky Mountain West. The ground breaking exhibit traveled from Bozeman, Montana, to Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Portland, Vancouver, B.C. and other cities. Working with Richard Molinaroli, of MFM Design, PPI Exhibit Design and Fabrication and Lawrence Johnson Productions, Prof. Peterson created a penetrating experience, depicting the collision of two cultures in the Rockies, the Jesuit Black Robes and the Salish People of Montana and Idaho. Lawrence teamed with Art Director Lawrence Pevec, to design the abstracted lodge, with pine poles, aluminum rigging and scrim frames that formed the structure for “The Salish Word.”

“The Salish World,” a 4-screen program, winner of the Golden Muse, the American Association of Museum’s highest award for audio/visual programs.
