The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates the state’s proud heritage of sports excellence. The project was executed over a whirlwind 18-month period in joint-venture with Hollomon Architects. Communication Arts developed the extensive research database, procured its vast collection of artifacts and images, recorded every living Hall of Famer on tape, produced all video and interactive media, and designed all displays to bring the Museum to life.
The main exhibit hall is surrounded by the wall of memories, showcasing memorabilia in a secure and controlled environment. Free-standing in the center of the hall is a three-dimensional sculpture depicting Dizzy Dean’s pitching motion.
Interactive touch-screen technology allows visitors to view interviews with sports stars and enjoy highlights of memorable games and performances.
Communication Arts was able to optimize construction budgets to increase the visual impact of the Museum’s interior spaces and establish additional income-generating entertainment venues.
