The success of custom ties and scarves for your museum shop
A day at the museum is not complete without a visit to the gift shop. Thus, the enticing items on the shelves of your museum shop make for portable, and sometimes wearable, mementos of favorite artworks.
Museum gifts help bring to life galleries and exhibits in a variety of ways. These items engage visitors by letting them take home a piece of their favorite artwork and help them remember exhibits for years to come. Most of all, custom gifts also turn visitors into ambassadors as soon as they walk out the door.
Pollock’s Number 10 at the MFA Museum Shop
One gift shop that successfully extended the museum experience well beyond its collections’ walls is the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA), Boston. The MFA’s museum store is currently selling custom ties and scarves that represent Jackson Pollock’s well-known painting, Number 10.
John Pollock is the founding father of abstract impressionism. His works are just as popular today as they were when he brought his style to life in the late 1940’s. Thus, many art enthusiasts would love to have a Pollock original hanging in their home. Thanks to the MFA’s museum shop, they can carry the essence of their favorite painting around with them.
