“Once a seemingly straightforward matter of displaying collections, exhibition can be viewed as an eminently interpretive endeavor: not just that the information exhibits present is subject to multiple interpretations, but the very act of presentation is fundamentally interpretive.”*
By now you should have determined which materials/objects you will use and you should have most of your text written for the labels. Remember, keep the labels simple and remember your audience!
Market the exhibit and the opening reception. Includes press release, exhibit card handout, CIA main menu, student bulletin boards, social media, etc.
Have everything ready before hand. Naturally, you will make changes at the last minute, but if you are prepared, you will have time to make adjustments as the exhibit is installed.

The exhibit room in the Conrad N. Hilton Library was named for Donald and Barbara Tober in 2004. "The Tobers have been advocates of The Culinary Institute of America and have demonstrated a keen understanding of the importance of private and corporate philanthropy in higher education... Their latest gift is just another example of how the actions of a few can truly benefit the futures of many." (CIA Annual Report, 2003-2004)
