HAI served on the content team for the museum, responsible for finding just the right images to tell the story of one of the most iconic structures in the world. HAI historians worked in close collaboration with experience design firm ESI Design and fabricators at Maltbie, along with the National Park Service, The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, and subject matter experts who made up the project’s History Advisory Committee.

HAI ultimately acquired nearly 500 photographs and graphics from more than 100 different sources for the museum. Images ranged from old to new, from rare historic photos of the Statue’s construction from the Bartholdi Museum in France to pop culture references such as graphic images from Marvel Comics.
