Welcome to MuseWork

Exhibit Planning and Design

You do the important work of preserving and advocating for our shared heritage. MuseWork wants to help provide your community with an opportunity to be amazed, entertained and enlightened. We are committed to supporting your educational mission with exhibits that are purposely playful — encouraging inquiry and engagement. Our goal is for each viewer to cultivate a personal connection with your story, to feel inspired to ask questions, learn more and keep the conversation going.

Our Story

How MuseWork was Born

We first collaborated on the Caprock Canyons State Park Visitor Center & Trailways. Angela was working as the lead interpretive planner for Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Megan was the creative director for Museumscapes. The success of that project led to many other collaborations, and in 2013, the two of us were inspired to form our own company. With the blessings of our Museumscapes’ colleagues, we forged ahead to create an exhibit planning and design firm, MuseWork, LLC, committed to supporting the missions of the museums and institutions that have always inspired us.

Angela Davis

Co-Founder and Project Lead

I have worked for museums, historic sites and nature centers because I believe in the transformative power of inquiry and lifelong learning. My goal is to lead each project from that place of inspiration while drawing on my expertise in communication theory, bringing both exuberance and mindful technique to the creative process. Aside from research and interpretation, my goal is to keep your project moving forward successfully, on schedule and on budget.

Roles: Project Management, Stakeholder Facilitation, Exhibit Planning, Conceptual Design, Interpretive Research and Writing

Megan Harvey

Co-Founder and Creative Lead

There is no greater reward than knowing my work contributes to education. I love learning new things and immersing myself in all the fascinating details that make a story special. As a creative professional with a background in communication design, I understand how important it is to connect with visitors in exciting and engaging ways. When I hear a visitor say, “Hey, come look at this; it’s so cool!” I know they’ll be talking about it long after they’ve walked away.
