New KVM Sign Makes an Impact



The Kalamazoo Valley Museum is sporting new exterior and interior signage. The scrolling text marquee in front of the building has been replaced with a modern digital display sign. “The new sign is more than just a freshening up,” Museum Director Bill McElhone said. “It gives us many more opportunities to promote the great programs the Kalamazoo Valley Museum provides for our community.” The sign has more graphic capabilities than its predecessor and can be programmed with text, photos and artwork.

As a part of the installation in front of the building, a ramp was cut in from the curb to make it easier for patrons with mobility issues to access the building.

In addition, the artwork in the lobby has also been updated. McElhone said, “The new look reinforces the brand and freshens up the space with a cleaner, simpler look. It definitely tells people where they are. We’re very happy with the new look.”
