The Tompkins Center for History and Culture has finally opened its doors in Ithaca, NY!
We are honored to have partnered with the History Center in Tompkins County to create a first-of-its-kind exhibit, providing an in-depth experience of Tompkins County’s rich cultural history and it's impact on the world. The exhibit hall was designed by Tessellate to create vibrant, interactive learning experiences that allow the public to explore and be fully immersed in Tompkins County local and regional history through multimedia exhibits.
“Working with Tessellate on the new exhibit space for the new center was a gratifying experience; we now have a versatile foundation for engaging with the public. The Content Management system they designed keeps our interactive content and media fresh and up to date.” - Rod Howe, Executive Director, The History Center in Tompkins County, Ithaca, NY
Tessellate is overjoyed to see the success of our collaboration with The History Center in Tompkins County come to life. It is here where visitors will explore the region's human history – both indigenous and colonial. At the center of the exhibit hall, the reconstructed Tommy Plane that made it’s centennial flight last fall offered a tribute to Ithaca's industrial past and enterprising present. Before entering the renovated bank vault which we converted into timeline tunnel, visitors are introduced to the Gayogo̱hó:nǫ (Cayuga) Nation culture with a projected media animation. This animation (as seen below) was created by Tessellate in collaboration with members of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫ Nation. This animation spans the past, present, and future of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫ presence in Tompkins County.
