Yes, the CDC has a museum – a really good one! In fact, the David J. Sencer CDC Museum is a Smithsonian Institution Affiliate that enjoys national recognition. So, we were honored when Georgia-Pacific called on us to produce six films that would be showcased in an exhibit they were sponsoring at the museum, Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well. Blue Marble crews traveled across the country, shooting interviews with each artist as they worked on their commissions. The video series recently won a Platinum Marcom Award.
Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well showcases the new work of six artists who interpret the act of hand washing in innovative and unexpected ways. The exhibit, showing at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum in Atlanta, features posters by James Victore of Brooklyn, NY, whose work has shown at MoMA and has appeared twice on the cover of TIME Magazine. Other featured artists include John Bankston, Joe Peragine, Katherine L. Ross, Didi Dunphy, and Laura Splan.
The exhibit runs through January 2012. Admission is always free to the public.
Telling the Story of the CDC and Georgia-Pacific Partnership
In addition to the six artists videos, Blue Marble also produced a short documentary overview of the CDC exhibit project. The video includes scenes from opening day, interviews with CDC, GP executives, and attendees of the exhibit, as well as background on how the exhibit came to be. From the overview documentary, Blue Marble then created a six screen video wall for Georgia-Pacific to use at a major industry tradeshow.
