ATLANTA — Lin-Manuel Miranda’s successful Broadway show “Hamilton” is one of the most popular shows of the decade.
The story of America's founding father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury secretary, was revolutionized for today’s audiences.
“Hamilton: The Exhibition” is an immersive user experience that takes audiences beyond the stage and inside the history.
All of the fabrication for the Exhibition was created right here in Georgia by ID3 Group, a full-service fabrication company, and part of Exploring, Inc., which creates (fabricates) immersive experiences that are truly unforgettable.
The A-Scene’s Francesca Amiker sat down with CEO Dave Walens about the project.
Walens tells us the project required 100 specialized artists spending 50,000 hours in 135,000 sq. ft. working to fabricate an exhibition in only 6 months.
The project required ID3’s specialized talent using their proprietary 3Dimensioneering process as well as intricate carpentry, metalworking, painting, scenic design, three-dimensional elements and much more, to create an 18-room exhibition detailing Alexander Hamilton’s life – from his early days to fame as a founding father of our country.
"Hamilton: The Exhibition" opened April 27 in Chicago in a freestanding temporary building on Northerly Island with approximately 25,000 square feet of exhibit space.
Walens tells us plans to bring the exhibit to Atlanta have not been announced.
