Lexington, a brand of The Companies of Nassal, announces that the Idaho State Museum received the American Association for State and Local History’s (AASLH) highest accolade, the 2019 Award of Excellence, for its exhibit, Idaho: The Land and Its People. The AASLH Leadership in History Awards is the nation’s most prestigious competition for recognition of achievement in state and local history.
Museum administrator Liz Hobson noted, “This accolade is another representation of all the purpose, thought, and research that went into not only making the Idaho State Museum an extension of Idaho’s history, but an essential educational resource for all Idahoans.”
The exhibit itself examines how Idaho’s unique landscapes have shaped, and continue to shape, the state’s shared experience. Four guiding principles were followed for this exhibit: 1) People and the land shape each other; 2) History is made by people, people make decisions that have consequences; 3) Historical decisions made in the past are relevant to contemporary life, our decisions will impact the future; and 4) Idaho’s story has a regional and national context.
The entire process from conception through installation and commissioning was very much a collaborative effort between the design-build team lead by Lexington, including Andrew Merriell and Associates; the Richard Lewis Media Group; Electrosonic; the Idaho State Historical Society staff;
subject matter experts; feedback from diverse communities throughout Idaho; a teacher advisory group; museum visitors; and statewide stakeholders.
“We’re so proud we were able to participate in the incredible renovation of the Idaho State Museum,” said Michael Shearin, Director of Design at Lexington, “There was so much passion and hard work that went into each and every exhibit, and this award is just one way that work has been recognized. The people of Idaho are also experiencing the fruits of those efforts every day, and for that we are grateful.”
The Idaho State Historical Society staff will receive the award at a special banquet during the 2019 AASLH Annual Meeting in Philadelphia on Friday, August 30, 2019.
