Kevin Winters was trained to create great art, not just to exhibit it. He began his museum career as preparator and installer for art objects at the St. Louis Art Museum where he worked with paintings, objects and textile conservators. He has experience in architectural restoration, including murals and carvings, as well as interior detailing. He has worked with painting and object conservators in St. Louis, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Phoenix. In the 1990s, Kevin was appointed Creative Director at the prestigious Heard Museum. During his tenure, he was responsible for oversight of the Design Department and managed architectural programming, design, budgeting, curatorial collaboration, outsourcing and project management of award-winning exhibitions. After founding Ganymede Design Group in 1995, Kevin expanded his work to include a variety of new clients as well as continuing his association with the Heard, for which he guided the architectural and design teams responsible for a major expansion in 1997 and then again for the major remodel and exhibition design that would result in the installation of a reinterpreted permanent collection (HOME). This highly-effective collaboration of facilitating the relationship between consulting architects, designers and the client’s own in-house design management and curatorial teams is the hallmark of his design philosophy. He continues to design beautiful and thoughtful environments and experiences for adults and children around the world and to make paintings and sculpture.
