"What I think makes us special is our very particular focus on the visitor experience. I'm in this business to create experiences that have the potential to change people."
Designing a gallery experience amidst a global pandemic, accessibility, teaching design and more: Jason Stevens, Principal at Flutter & Wow talks with Science Gallery about the unique challenges and opportunities in exhibition design. Read the interview here:
FUTURE PRESENT: Design in a Time of Urgency. Now open in downtown Detroit — reserve your free, timed-entry ticket: https://detroit.sciencegallery.com/futurepresent
"The exhibition is especially interested in the impact of design on society, and in equitable and sustainable social change. COVID-19 has revealed quite clearly the insufficiency and undesirable nature of many of the systems and subsystems in which we live, and the urgency for systemic change. The challenge now is how to use design to guide us through our present uncertainty toward a more equitable, resilient future."
Opening today in Detroit! FUTURE PRESENT: Design in a Time of Urgency. Innovative works from around Detroit and the world exploring humanity’s relationship to design. #flutterandwow #SciArt #futurepresent #design #exhibitdesign #designbuild

Tobacco is such an important part of the rich history and culture of southwest Kentucky. As part of The Pennyroyal Area Museum redesign, we were lucky to work with the incredibly talented Wilkinson Visual on this beautiful film documenting contemporary tobacco farming in Christian County.
Here's a sneak peek. The full length film is on display at the museum and it's stunning.

Black Patch Tobacco Wars, Night Riders, alien encounters, Edgar Cayce’s psychic readings, the 101st Airborne, the Trail of Tears and so much more: the Pennyroyal Area Museum in Hopkinsville, KY has it all. What an absolute pleasure and joy to design, fabricate and install all new exhibits for this beautiful history museum. Grand reopening is today.
Here's F&W's @spoke9 detailing the Night Rider display at the Pennyroyal Area Museum.
The Night Rider story is a complicated and violent episode of Kentucky history, involving tobacco farmers during the 1910s, struggling to effectively unite against the corporate conglomerates that were driving tobacco commodity prices down to levels that made it impossible for growers to sustain a livelihood. The period is referred to as the Black Patch War.
This is a genuine Night Rider hood, emblematic of the costume worn by gangs who'd ride out at night to forcibly coerce non-participating farmers to join the collective.
They burned crops, barns and warehouses; they threatened violence and used it; they laid seige on Hopkinsville; they did many of the things you might imagine a bunch of desperate white men riding around the countryside with torches, guns and hoods on might do.

There's still time to check out Science Gallery Detroit's free exhibition, DEPTH, at the Michigan Science Center. Produced by Flutter & Wow Museum Projects.
DETROIT — A decade ago, Trinity College Dublin in Ireland decided that one of the best ways to get the public excited about science was through art.
The Van Hoosen Farm has a very special history: it was run by three generations of trailblazing women. Women who were pioneers and leaders in their fields, women who traveled the world, and we think it’s safe to say, women who changed the world. @flutterandwow continued to be amazed and inspired by the stories of this family and this place throughout the exhibit design process. 📷 @hanna_vongpraseuth #exhibitdesign #vanhoosenfarm #museumexhibit #flutterandwow #interactiveexhibition #strongwomen #girlpower
We've been working on some exciting projects and we're happy to share them with you:
DEPTH: Exploring our deep and complex connection to water through art and science.
Open to the public June 8.
Soon the fourth floor of the Michigan Science Center will be transformed into a thought-provoking and engaging Science Gallery Detroit exhibition. DEPTH will explore our relationship to water through a variety of exhibits by artists and researchers from around the world. @flutterandwow is proud to be designing and producing this show with @scigallerydet. We are especially grateful to have a team of talented craftsmen and designers who are making it all happen. DEPTH opens free to the public on June 8. #sciencegallerydetroit #flutterandwow #exhibitdesign #museumexhibition #DEPTH #Detroit #artandscience
Paragon Design + Display
A FAMILY WHO LIVED 139 YEARS ON ONE FARM: For the past several months, Paragon has worked with Flutter & Wow Museum Projects to produce interactive historical pieces for The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm. This week, we will be showcasing the work that was put into this redesign and also sharing a bit of this quintessential pioneer story!
Leonard Woodcock was the UAW President, the US Ambassador to China, and a dedicated civil rights activist. Flutter & Wow Museum Projects designed this wall in his honor at the Wayne State University Walter P. Reuther Library in Detroit.
Last year was all about the HUSTLE, and this year is all about the DEPTH. Science Gallery Detroit, North America’s first and only Science Gallery, is proud to be a Detroit fixture and Flutter & Wow is proud to be designing and producing the show again. Twice the space, twice the number of artists, twice as DEEP. #DEPTH2019 #ScienceGalleryDetroit #ExhibitDesign #FlutterWow #MichiganScienceCenter #ArtandScience #MuseumExhibit
The "Power of Children," an exhibition about the remarkable lives of Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges, and Ryan White, is showing at the beautiful Ypsilanti Public Library, Whitaker branch. F&W designed and built this exhibition, and it's spent the past several years touring the country. Now it's in our backyard — but only for two weeks more!
Our hearts are fluttering! On her recent visit to the Motown Museum, Former First Lady Michelle Obama sat facing the Black Forum Records wall we designed. We're sure she loved Hitsville USA, and hope she liked the Black Forum Records exhibit, too!
We are truly honored to have former First Lady Michelle Obama visit Motown Museum for a special visit! Along with Keegan-Michael Key and her brother, Craig Robinson, Mrs. Obama surprised and spoke with young men of color from Wayne State University prior to her 'Becoming' tour. Today was a historic day at Hitsville U.S.A. we'll never forget.
“What objects at the University of Michigan might be considered the most significant and revered?”
We agree with this answer: the telescopes at the Detroit Observatory. They are more storied than you might think:
Also, F&W will be consulting with the Univeristy on developing new interpretive exhibits for these beauties. 🌠🔭😀
What object at the University might be considered the most significant and revered?
