PLAYMAKERS, ENFORCERS & GOALIES EXHIBIT
Exhibit showcasing hockey jerseys and sticks of the Buffalo Sabres’ Playmakers, Enforcers & Goalies
Following the Buffalo Sabres’ 40th Anniversary Exhibit, OW|EN developed a second display to occupy the same cases on the second-floor mezzanine of the HSBC Arena. Once again borrowing hockey memorabilia from the collection of Joseph E. Gambacorta, DDS, our design team came up with a new story to tell that would commemorate those who scored the goals, those unafraid to get tough on the ice, and those who blocked shots.
While reassessing Dr. Gambacorta’s extensive collection of Sabres team artifacts, we noticed that the most prevalent player collectibles in his collection were hockey jerseys and sticks – common souvenirs among fans. Using this lens, we created a relatable narrative told through these items.
