Shedd Aquarium Master Plan

Chicago, Illinois

Anne Voshel was involved in developing two Master Plans for the John G. Shedd Aquarium: the original Master Plan in 1998 and the revised Master Plan in 2006. The first master plan had a strategic focus on education and when it was time to refresh that plan in 2004 the competitive audience profile had changed and Shedd's strategy was focused on edutainment. The Master Plans allowed the Shedd to undertake fund raising efforts to expand and revitalize their institution, and provide them with a vision of their facilities expansion for 10 to 15 years into the future.
