When I met exhibit designer Richard Bentham last summer while in Washington DC, I immediately wanted to have him come on the show. Museums play such a pivotal part in our understanding of history, and I thought it would be fascinating to explore that with someone who actually designs the exhibits we see.

We started off talking about Richard’s work at the National Museum of the American Indian, and he shared how he first got interested in exhibit design. From there, we discussed the role of the museum in modern times, and Richard talked about where he sees exhibit design going in the future. He even shared some advice for designers out there who might be interested in getting into the field. It’s vital that we see more people of color in museums, not just as attendees, but as people behind the scenes as well. I’m really glad to have Richard on the podcast to not only talk about these issues, but to show a new possibility for designers to pursue!
