Over the last week we asked a range of audiences to select their favourite title for our planned Birds of Paradise exhibition (opening April 2011). What did they decide?
Over the last week we asked a range of audiences to select their favourite title for our planned Birds of Paradise exhibition. As we needed fast feedback we were able to sample different groups as shown in the results below.
|Total Votes||Digital Heritage Students||Museum Shops Association*||s&d visitors|
|Birds of Paradise: Flaunting Feathers||32||17||5||1||9|
|Birds of Paradise: Flight of Fancy||41||7||2||5||27|
|Birds of Paradise: Chasing Tail||11||2||4||0||5|
|Birds of Paradise: Prancing Plumage||9||2||0||0||7|
|Birds of Paradise: Ritual and Seduction||31||11||4||7||9|
|Birds of Paradise: Beautiful Boys, Fabulous Feathers||21||5||9||0||7|
The MLC girls and teacher who attended the workshop the other week chose Birds of Paradise: Flight of Fancy as their number one followed by Birds of Paradise: Flaunting Feathers.
Naming exhibitions can be tricky - if you want more information about how to do it go to this blog post. This turned out to be an interesting experiment. When I used the Facebook Polls application it turned out that people didn't want to download it. Lesson for next time? Just use the wall for discussion as that worked just as well.
So, as you can see the results are quite varied and it’s now up to the Project Team to see what they select. Will keep you posted!
