Museum Selects TFI Envision Again!

Norwalk, CT — The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum (LMMM) selected TFI Envision, Inc. again this year to develop the graphics for their upcoming black-tie Gala and exhibition preview on October 10, 2015.


The new exhibit, “The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants” will highlight themes of general interest such as the immigrant experience, housing, social justice, the role of women, and economics during the Victorian era.


TFI Envision, Inc. created a bold graphic featuring the elegant grand staircase that is a central feature of the mansion, with servants in the midst of their daily duties.


This image was used on their Save the Date card and will be on the Invitation, Outdoor Banners, Advertising, Posters and other collateral materials.


The exhibit will be open to the public October 14, 2015 through October 1, 2016, Wednesday – Sunday, 12-4 p.m.
General Admission: $10 for Adults, $8 for Seniors, $6 for Students (8-18).
