OMSI. During the development of the National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded exhibit,
Creatividad silvestre | Wild Creativity, the project team worked on an accessibility plan and met
with consultants from the Oregon Commission for the Blind to discuss ways the exhibit
experience could be more inclusive and user-friendly.
