Hello! My name is Lindsey Smith and I have 18 years of experience working with many facets of cultural heritage. I've worked with exhibit development, collections management, and professional training. As a consultant, I help organizations discover innovative-yet-practical solutions for their creative projects. Whether I'm strategizing for the future, documenting historic materials, or developing captivating experiences, I see the forest and the trees.

In addition to my consulting work, I worked on exhibits including The U-505,  The Henry Crown Space CenterLeonardo: Man, Inventor, Genius, and many more while on staff at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. I've also worked on staff at Des Moines University, the Amherst Museum, and the Iowa Jewish Historical Society. I founded Exhibitsmith in 2009, shortly after moving to Des Moines, Iowa.

Oh and that's not all! In 2014 I founded Hangerbee, a company dedicated to preserving historic garments. Hangerbee's museum-quality, affordable padded hangers are available at www.hangerbee.com as well as at Gaylord Archival.
