Mary Lowell Visitor Center

Mary Lowell Visitor Center, Seward, Alaska.

Conceived as a multi-agency visitor center for United States Forest Service and National Park Service staff in downtown Seward, Alaska, the Mary Lowell Visitor Center would be a primary destination for visitors in SE Alaska. Jan Coleman created the Interpretive Plan for the facility, then designed the exhibits to incorporate both natural history (USFS) and cultural history (NPS) in a way that includes fragments of realistic dioramas within modern, abstract exhibitry – elegantly covering a wide, rich storyline.
