The Mennonite Heritage Village
An outdoor interpretive signage system was required throughout the grounds of the Mennonite Heritage Village (MHV) located in Steinbach, Manitoba. The signage describes artifacts such as the famous windmill, more than fifteen historic buildings and various memorials. Full-colour curatorial notebooks were also designed to provide visitors with more detailed information. 2003–present
“Anikó brings an attention to detail, valuable insight into how a design will best communicate our message, thoughtful feedback on content, and enthusiastic creativity, which has made her a joy to work with."
– Andrea Dyck Senior Curator, MHV
Temporary exhibits are produced annually at the MHV and displayed in the Gerhard Ens Gallery. Exhibit panels have been produced for numerous exhibits featuring relevant historical topics. 2003–present
In 2016, the MHV will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in Manitoba by focusing on the stories of Mennonite women. Beyond Tradition: The Lives of Mennonite Women tells the stories of those who went beyond their traditional roles as wives and mothers.
“Anikó has produced design work for a number of projects at Mennonite Heritage Village (MHV) over the last several years. MHV is a world-class village museum which educates and entertains over 40,000 guests from more than 50 countries every year. We value excellence in all areas of our work and public presentation. Anikó Szabó’s work clearly meets our requirements for quality and excellence. She has designed numerous interpretive panels for exhibits in our galleries. Most recently Anikó did the graphic design for Kroeger Clocks, a book MHV published in 2012. This glossy coffee-table book includes many photos and stories about a significant element of Mennonite culture. The quality of the type face, layout, and reproduction of photographs has contributed to the popularity of the book.”
