Enshrined Memories: Brooklyn and the Civil Warexhibition identity and graphics

In collaboration with the Green-Wood Cemetery, Enshrined Memories was installed at the Brooklyn Public Library to highlight the borough’s important role in the American Civil War. Brooklyn, the country’s third-largest city at the time, sent troops to fight in Union armies and navies, produced vast supplies of industrial materials, built warships, and provided refuge for runaway slaves and free blacks. This involvement helped the US emerge stronger with the abolishment of slavery and the preservation of the Union. MZD provided consultation and created the exhibition visual identity and graphics.
