Grand Central Terminal Treasure Hunt
New York Transit Museum / 2013
Client: New York Transit Museum
Product: Half-fold Print
Service Provided: Design & Illustration
The monumental New York City landmark, Grand Central has turned 100 years old this year! To celebrate, the New York Transit Museum put together a wonderful activity for children three and up—an exciting scavenger hunt of the Main Concourse, that is rewarded with a free visit to the Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn.
I worked with the museum directors and education staff who presented the scavenger hunt idea with delightful poetry, along with a handful of fascinating facts about Grand Central. The challenge was to create a kind of guiding map of the Main Concourse that was based on the actual structure, but fun and easy enough for the child to comprehend and follow.
This legal-size half-fold print was first distributed at the Kid Junction in Vanderbilt Hall, during the Grand Centennial Parade of Trains event (May 11-12, 2013). It will continue to be used throughout the year.
