Celebration

Exhibits create a gathering place for the celebration of ideas and concepts. A well-designed exhibit provides tools, clues, and invitations for people to turn celebration into involvement.

When looking at a previously created idea such as an exhibit, a 2011 study found that people work more effectively when working as a group. If those collaborating together share ideas, they may be more innovative and will think of more practical ideas rather than when they work alone.
