Mark Lindquist is a founding partner and creative director of Harvest Moon Studio. For over 25 years, Mr. Lindquist has created media pieces for exhibits at museums, corporations and theme parks; ranging from animated maps and interactive cars to piloting the space shuttle and mapping up oil spills with microbes. His creativity, technical stills, and ability to distill raw ideas into produce-able, on-budget solutions makes Harvest Moon an invaluable resource.
Mark’s career stretches far and wide across the media spectrum, from hands-on to high-tech. His early career was spent running the animations department for the TV show “Pee Wee’s Playhouse,” creating shots for the movie TRON, designing the first computer paint system, and working with artists in NYC making the digital transition, Keith Haring and Nam June Paik. In his spare time he paints digitally, and with oils on canvas.
Heather Lindquist has worked in interpretive exhibit design and museum planning for over 25 years. With a background in American history, she approaches each project with an eye toward the larger story it can tell, its ability to connect diverse audiences through shared experiences, and its potential to inspire deeper exploration and life-long learning.
In venues stretching from Andersonville, Georgia, to Manzanar California, Mrs. Lindquist has developed numerous exhibits on the natural and cultural history of the United States. Projects for the National Park Service include. The National Prisoner of War Museum, the Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Manzanar National Historic Site, Badlands National Park, the Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial, and the Naval Live Oaks Visitor Center.
