Red Rock Marina Centre main exhibit hall


Award of Excellence – Bronze – Interpretation Canada, 2016


The Red Rock Marina Interpretive Centre is located on the shores of the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area. We were responsible for creating interpretation for inside and outside the newly completed green building.

The client asked for the lobby to provide the WOW factor. We created an interactive floor map of the shore and national marine conservation area. A rock cuesta wall to show off the local geological feature. A huge wall projection of professional photos of the magnificent landscape and a one-of-a-kind tourism kiosk that promotes both the town of Red Rock and the north shore of Lake Superior.

The main exhibit hall includes exhibits featuring: video messages from the residence of Red Rock, the Pulp and Paper Mill, the Prisoner of War Camp, Cuestas, an interactive virtual fish tank, a boreal forest exhibit for children, colourful panels about the marine conservation area and a submarine ride under the surface to experience the marine conservation area and more.

We also created colourful panels on the decks around the outside of the marina centre that invite visitors to take photos with a giant Great Blue Heron and other creatures.

S. Dangerfield Interpretive Planning’s expertise guided the Red Rock interpretive exhibits through inception to installation. Sherry was able to capture the community’s voice and uniqueness and created nine interactive and innovative exhibits.
