SIE Mission

SIE is the Smithsonian’s pan-institutional resource for exhibit planning, exhibit development, design and production services. We provide exhibit expertise and support to all public-facing functions within Smithsonian museums and offices.

We support the Smithsonian’s objective to connect the American people, and international audiences, with the richness of Smithsonian content and collections by:

  • Providing the highest quality exhibit design, interpretive writing, project management, graphic production, fabrication and 3D projects;
  • Partnering with SI museums and offices to augment in-house capabilities;
  • Serving as a professional resource for Smithsonian exhibition colleagues.
