Oregon Historical Society Windows on America

Our interactive displays engaged visitors to help bring the OHS’s story of the presidents to life.

When the Oregon Historical Society began organizing its exhibit Windows on America: The Challenges of Presidential Leadership, they wanted to include interactive content to help pull visitors into the big heroic stories. Working in conjunction with Ancona + Associates, Inc., Sticky was tasked with creating engaging digital moments for the show.

The final rich media presentation featured four interactive touchscreen displays, programmed by Sticky, each focused on presidents of a different era. Gallery goers could swipe through documents, zoom in on details (like John Hancock’s famous autograph), and listen to dramatized readings. This touchable technology encouraged a new level of participation as it gave visitors a compelling way to interact with the historical highlights.
