Description: What if 'The Shining' had been a romance? Keep this question in mind as you explore this exhibit, which showcases the collaboration between psychology research and production design, featuring a complete re-imagining of the world of 'The Shining.' Featured are six of the major locations taken from the film, re-designed to fit the intention of romance, rather than horror, as well as inspirations, articles, and sketches that played a role in the final design. I hope you enjoy this exhibit!
