1220 Steps into the Packers’ History
1220 Exhibits fabricates immersive experiences at the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame
The Green Bay Packers are one of the most storied franchises in the National Football League. Founded in 1919, the team has played in 51 postseason games, amassing 13 World Championships and 23 Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinees. The team’s history is unfolded in the new 15,000sq. ft. Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame at historic Lambeau Field.
Through a prior working relationship, 1220 Exhibits of Nashville, Tennessee was called upon to outfit the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame with updated exhibits, scenic figures and artifacts to provide visitors an intimate and immersive experience with their favorite team. The Hall of Fame features 65 custom cases ranging from recessed, freestanding, cylinder and wall cases housing artifacts including Lombardi trophies, Brett Favre’s player contract, stockholder’s certificates and championship rings. 1220’s Artifact Specialist fabricated custom mounts to safely display each artifact.
1220’s Scenic capabilities are showcased in the “Discipline and Love” gallery with a recreation of Vince Lombardi’s office complete with a desk and telephone. The gallery also describes the 1967 Ice Bowl with two recreated figures clad in winter wear and a recreation of Dave Robinson huddled on a bench with a warm sideline cape along with audio recollections of the game. 1220’s Interactives department developed a breathing effect from the figures’ mouths with water vapor to emphasize the subzero temperatures that requires low maintenance and upkeep for the museum staff.
Another highlight, the “Excellence” gallery depicts the team’s Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinees complete with wall “locker” display cases and accompanying monitors featuring player highlights. Additional features of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame include a theater, touchscreen interactives and graphics. The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is set to open August 21st.
