To help usher in a new set of exhibits, the Ziegler Fiesta Bowl Museum in Scottsdale, Arizona hired CK Valenti Designs to design and build new interactive and display exhibits. The Fiesta Bowl Museum features memorabilia from Fiesta Bowl events and bowl games, including Fiesta Bowl team helmets and trophies. Some of college football’s most prestigious award trophies that are showcased include the Fiesta Bowl, Heisman, Eddie Robinson, and the National Championship Coaches’ trophy.
To help create a sports-like atmosphere, we designed alder veneer and solid alder pedestal display cases with clear acrylic vitrines to exhibit the array of college football memorabilia. Each custom wood pedestal also has a black anodized aluminum inlay. The streamlined characteristics of these artistic pieces help present an upscale look to the popular museum. The wood pedestal display units exhibit a unique collection of various football related items so sports fans are able to be within inches of their favorite teams’ collectable items.
The reception desk is situated so that the staff is able to warmly greet visitors and has a new alder facade with a transaction counter top and a football inspired brushed stainless steel lace detail and black anodized aluminum inlay.
Custom floating alder shelves were created to hold 132 college football team helmets with an addressable LED system controlled by a tablet. Each tablet is attached to a football inspired kiosk made of alder veneer with a brushed stainless steel lace detail, black anodized aluminum inlay, and an adjustable mounting bracket for the tablet. This feature allows patrons to easily interact with the digital screens in order to learn more about the history of the Fiesta Bowl and each of the teams that have played in the annual bowl game in Phoenix, AZ.
The museum is close to Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport, making it convenient for tourists, as well as residents. It is also free to the public and a great place for the entire family to visit.
