The Transformative Power of Place

July 11 + 12, 2019 | Santa Fe, New Mexico | A design based exploration of culture, color and place

Thank you for attending the 2019 Museum Design Summit. We hope you enjoyed your time in Santa Fe and at the Museum. Equally, we hope we achieved our goal of inspiring you to engage more deeply with cultural material as a source of inspiration and to take a fresh look at how place can reveal new directions in color and design.

We look forward to staying in contact with you and collaborating with you on design projects. If you are interesting in working with us, or want to be involved in planning for MDS 2021, please email

Below are links to the attendee contact list, an evaluation form we hope you will take a few moments to fill out. Even photos will be added soon!
