Timeline: November 2018 - February 2018
After the success of the elements we created for the Youthlink Interpretive Centre in the past (donor wall, forensic exhibit, bathroom decals, etc) we were approached to develop their theatre room. One of the last areas untouched in the interpretive centre, Youthlink wanted us to create a space that would speak to the younger audiences who come to the room to watch black and white educational movies on the history of the CPS and engage in mock courtroom scenarios.
Youthlink had the idea of displaying past criminal mugshots so that the students could get a feel for what life was like in the early years of the CPS, and the types of criminals they ran into. We thought a great way to show these off would be to create an atmosphere that resembled an old west jail cell. The dark colours would recede when people were watching the educational film but stand out when the lights were on. The hand-drawn backgrounds give a rugged weathered look which contrasts nicely with the beautiful authentic photos from the early 1900s.
The final product turned out phenomenal. the Rotary Club, who were, responsible for providing the money for Youthlink to develop the theatre room showed up in full force to support the opening of the new exhibit.
