Jic Clubb

  • What I do, where I work

  • Designer, display artist, muralist, sculptor – Brooks-Clubb Studio. I design exhibits and traveling shows, specializing in small museums with limited resources. Using art, graphics, and lighting, I refurbish, renovate, or repurpose tired old shows, as well as design and fabricate new audience-centered exhibits from planning to grand opening.

Positions

  • Designer/Principal at Brooks-Clubb Studo

  • Designer at The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History

  • More about me

  • I began my exhibits career in 1979 as a preparator/designer at the Huntington Gallery at The University of Texas at Austin, which is now known as the Blanton Museum. Through the years I have freelanced at art galleries, worked as a scenic artist on films and in the theater, and was a retail display artist (I am still a CutAwl maestro) where I learned a lot about audience responses to visuals. In 1992, I became Manager of Exhibits at Humanities Texas, the state partner of the NEH, and worked there until 2007. While there, I designed and fabricated over 50 traveling exhibits:

    I have recently retired from my position as Exhibit Specialist with The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin.

    Now I have begun consulting with small museums about ways to improve their exhibits by using interpretive story-telling layouts and creative, yet inexpensive, techniques of murals, graphics, and lighting.
