Beyond the Box: Using Coroplast for Creative and Cost Effective Storage Solutions and Exhibit Mounts


In this video, Jeanne Brako, Curator and Conservator at the Center of Southwest Studies in Fort Lewis College and Jack Townes, Exhibit Designer and Preparator at Skycraft Designs, discuss how Coroplast, a corrugated plastic often used for commercial signage, can be used in museums. Applications include creating a storage rack for framed art using a simple shelf unit, making shipping crates without power tools, and fabricating custom book mounts, slant boards for artifact displays, and clothing mounts. This session was part of the 2016 ATALM annual conference held in Phoenix, Arizona, on September 10-13, 2016.
