SOCCER CITY, USA Exhibit
Through the spring and summer of 2011, FC Media collected, curated and presented an exhibit on the NASL era of the Portland Timbers at the Oregon Historical Society. Showcasing physical memorabilia from players, owners and fans, the exhibit was the first of its kind in Portland, drawing even MLS Commissioner Don Garber to visit.
Yet the history of a club should not be limited just to those who were present at points along the way. Sharing pieces of the past is an effective way to engage supporters, new fans and those unfamiliar with the stories. In this light, FC Media places a high priority on the presentation of historic photographs and physical objects, be it through web media, singular display or wider exhibit.
Marketing departments can create visual displays with all of the signs of a base in history. Yet an approach emphasizing research, accuracy and thoughtful context brings the past to life.
