Baker Museum Exhibit – Ground Effects Machine

“The way we use technology is completely wasteful. We duplicate many vacuum cleaners, tools, etc. In the future, we will make the best of all equipment and make it available to everyone.” – Jacque Fresco

November 19, 2016 heralded the opening of “Jacque Fresco – 100 Years of Vision” at the Baker Museum in Naples, Florida. This exhibit was a year in the making and was finalized about three months prior to opening. Joel Holt and Roxanne Meadows spent 3 months cleaning and reconditioning 54 of Jacque’s models, which are now displayed between many of the black and white ink sketches chosen from over 5500 that Jacque has produced over the past 37 years. Four walls are devoted to a timeline of Jacque’s life’s work, presented through blueprints, drawings, patent illustrations, photos, and even a video. The museum curator, Silvia Perea, performed extensive research and assembled a detailed display of Jacque’s 100 years of work spanning diverse fields, all laid out in chronological order. It will impress and inspire people of all ages. Special thanks to Silvia, Frank Verpoorten, and everyone else at the Artis-Naples/Baker Museum who made this exhibit possible.
