Story posted April 23, 2004

The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum has won a third-place Publications Design Award from the New England Museum Association for its invitation to the opening of the exhibition Treasures and Trinkets: Collecting Culture in the North.

The invitation, which featured an 1897 drawing done by an Inupiat from Cape Prince of Wales, Alaska, was created by the Arctic Museum staff working with Bill Fall of Fall Design, Harpswell, Maine.

This year the Publications Design Award competition attracted 246 publications submitted by 70 museums throughout New England. Entries fell into 19 different categories.

The exhibition Treasures and Trinkets: Collecting Culture in the North, currently on view at the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, was curated by Genevieve LeMoine and designed by David Maschino.

A notecard featuring the image used on the invitation is for sale in the Museum's shop.
