Congrats to the National Soccer Hall of Fame!

The American Alliance of Museums Media and Technology Network’s awarded the National Soccer Hall of Fame the Gold Muse Award for Research and Innovation for its “Facial Recognition Personalization Software” at their recent Awards night. 


This technology installation allows a personalized tour of the museum. When a patron arrives, they fill out information about their favorite soccer teams and level of fandom. As the patron tours the museum, their face is recognized as they approach different exhibits and the display is tailored to reflect that person's interests!

Kudos to the entire team who worked on the project, including Healy Kohler Design and Cortina Productions. We were honored to be a part of such a ground breaking project.

To learn more, check out the National Soccer Hall of Fame's website.

The Marriage of Bette & Boo


Kathy and Chris recently worked on the lighting design for one of Rhode Island College's Mainstage Theatre productions, The Marriage of Bette & Boo by Christopher Durang. 

The career of most ALD employees began in the theatre and it's always nice to get back to our roots! 


Directed by Connie Crawford, the story followed the protagonist (Matt) down memory lane as he deals with his family's dysfunction. The show ran February 20-24 in the Helen Forman Theatre. Photos by Kate Noel Artistry.
