The Portfolio Project is an initiative to train Apprentices to document their designs as evidence of their skills and of the Museum’s scope and purpose. While there is some collaboration in all designs, unless otherwise noted, the creative and technical decisions that shaped this work are principally the apprentice's.

Funded by the Seymour Lustman Foundation.
