Sound & Communications: Liberty for All
A look at how AV technology engages and informs Statue of Liberty Museum visitors.
The new Statue of Liberty Museum, built by the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island Foundation and the National Park Service, is the largest renovation to the Statue of Liberty since it was first opened in 1886. Sound & Communications Magazine sits with Carol Feeley-Vario and Mark DiQuinzio, key Diversified team members on the project, to discuss Diversified’s approach to how AV technology engages and informs Statue of Liberty Museum visitors and delivered both the upgrade the Museum needed as well as the historical reverence it deserved.
“Five years and $100 million in the making is the new, 26,000-square-foot Statue of Liberty Museum. That the new museum is tied to the single most iconic symbol of immigration in United States history makes its mission all the more challenging at the moment. The self-standing museum’s designers relied heavily on AV technology to help them tell a uniquely, singularly American story.”
Having worked on multiple historical and world-renowned sites such as The Empire State Building and the United States Capitol, Diversified was uniquely qualified for this project. A modern upgrade for such a major American landmark does not come without it’s challenges but with thorough planning, a little ingenuity, and a constant pulse on market products and trends (even after the project had begun), Diversified was able to deliver one of the most immersive, engaging and truly meaningful exhibit experiences the world has ever seen.
