"American Spirits" opens at the NCC


The National Constitution Center's new exhibit "American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition" opened today to critical acclaim. Moey had the honor of creating three pieces for the new exhibition: an interactive speakeasy door that invites visitors to try knocking on the bar door to see if they make the cut, a photo line-up that allows visitors to take their photo with famous gangsters of the era, and the highlight of the show Wayne Wheeler's Amazing Amendment Machine, a mechanical theater that tells the story of how this controversial amendment came to pass.

The exhibition runs from October 18th, 2012 to April 28th, 2013.

A video is also available on the New York Times website of the amendment machine in motion.
