Lucy Burns Museum

Project Overview

The Lucy Burns Museum, located at the Workhouse Arts Center, is an installation of professional history exhibits telling the story of the 91 years of Lorton Workshouse prison history and the story of the suffragists who were imprisoned there in 1917 for picketing the White House for women’s right to vote.

The museum grand opening was in January 2020 and to prepare this project included promotional photography, creating promotional items such as mugs, magnets and tshirts, writing and sending press releases, writing and posting on social media, writing and sending emails, and updating online resources and calendars.

Promotional Products

The promotional products — mugs, magnets and clothing — were created using the logo for the museum, historical images, and phrases that were related to the prison and/or suffragists. My role included brainstorming the products to be sold and the art/phrases to use, creating the art, layouts, and managing the vendors and orders.

Promotional Photography

I took photos of the museum before it opened to be used for promotional purposes including social media, eblasts, press releases and more.

Press Releases

I wrote two press releases to announce the upcoming museum opening and to invite the press to a private pre-opening reception. They garnered local, national and international press inquiries and stories.
