Studio Tours – Smithsonian Institution, Exhibits Central

Join AIGA DC as we open the doors to the Smithsonian Institution's Office of Exhibits Central…


Join AIGA DC as we open doors to some of the DC-area’s creative studios. Get a behind-the-scenes look at inner workings and spaces, see some works in progress, discover other office cultures and methodologies, and rub elbows with creative that you might not otherwise meet!

Since its inception in 1973, the Office of Exhibits Central (OEC) has been the Smithsonian Institution’s largest and most comprehensive exhibit producer. Experienced in permanent installations as well as traveling and temporary exhibitions, our staff provides Smithsonian clients with high-quality products and specialized services. From the big-name museums to the smaller collections-based bureaus, the OEC does it all—design, edit, print, model, mount, build and more!
