C&G Partners was tasked with the exhibition design, graphic design, and sound & media production for Comeback Season: Sports After 9/11 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City.
The emotions of sports crowds at various points after 9/11 is an effective way to frame the story arc, using design gestures to take visitors back to those key moments in stadiums and portray the changing emotions of a whole nation.
Working closely with the museum staff, the exhibition was divided into nine sections, with additional stations dedicated to stories of victims and their families. Each section includes dramatically large images, custom short documentaries, objects from the museum’s collection or on loan for the exhibit, and poignant quotes.
Special thanks to Koble Delmer, Calista Bohling, Christian Montoro and the rest of the C&G Partners team.
