Posted by Ravenswood Studio on Aug 02, 2021 in

Ravenswood Studio is proud to share the news of its expanding team and capabilities. Michael Shapiro, Owner and President, recently announced the newest addition to the Ravenswood Studio executive leadership team: Mark Ewing, as Chief Operating Officer.

“Mark will add tremendous value to our team and our clients,” says Shapiro. “He brings over two decades of experience, both as a former client and colleague.”

Ewing has spent the last three years as the Production Director at Luci Creative, a full-service experience design studio, overseeing the project management department, and working hand-in-hand with clients and vendors on making Luci’s project ideas into a reality. Major exhibit projects completed include: Christian Science Monitor Publishing House Redesign in Boston, Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab in Denver, Ford House Visitor Center, Spokane Public Library Playspaces (in 6 locations), Powering Lives: A ComEd Community Center, and many more.

His expansive career began as Technical Director for a variety of live show productions in North Carolina. Ewing then moved to Chicago where he worked as a Project Manager for Chicago Scenic Studios, leading a range of specialty fabrication projects, from museums to television studio sets, and expanding the automation department.

For nearly eleven years Ewing served as a Senior Project Manager at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, one of the world’s largest science museums. There, he oversaw several major exhibit projects, including You! The Experience, Robot Revolution, Extreme Ice!, and Numbers in Nature, the latter of which was fabricated by Ravenswood Studio.

Ewing will work in partnership with Shapiro and the rest of the Ravenswood Studio team to continue the company’s rapid growth while ensuring team member development, hands-on client care and successful project delivery.

“Having worked so closely with Ravenswood Studio, especially in the past few years, I am thrilled to be a part of their team and excited for the adventure ahead,” Ewing said.
