Installation of Exhibits, New Interpretive Center
Placerita Canyon State Park

December 2, 2014 — Installation of the exhibits in the new Interpretive Center at Placerita Canyon State Park, operated by the County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation, began Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014.

Exhibits were fabricated by the contrator Group Delphi at its 110,000-square-foot headquarters facility in Alameda; then they were crated and shipped to the park for reassembly.

About Group Delphi: Tony Erpelding and Justin Hersh founded Delphi Productions in 1989, after realizing that, with their backgrounds in theater and love of storytelling, they inherently understood the "wow" moments that every museum wants to capture. As Delphi Productions grew, they added to their team to expand the company's museum exhibit offerings and experience.

In 2009, Delphi Productions became Group Delphi after merging with Icon Exhibits of Fort Wayne, IN. Icon brought with it a long, respected 75-year history of museum production, working on the likes of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum and the John Dillinger Museum.

In 2011, with an eye on becoming the premier museum partner in the world, Group Delphi merged with General Graphic Exhibits (GGE). Founded in 1961, GGE had a reputation as the go-to fine arts partner for Bay Area artists and legendary photographers like Ansel Adams and Jim Marshall. They were also well known for their museum exhibit work, including the Levi Strauss 150th Anniversary Pavilion. While many of the museum-specific GGE offerings came under the Group Delphi banner after the merger, General Graphics still operates as one of the best-known fine arts printing and mounting specialists in the country.

The final piece of the puzzle came from Justin and Tony's forward-looking vision — adding advanced media, digital content, and AV integration skill sets to provide complete in-house capabilities. Group Delphi now proudly offers the ability to handle literally any museum project anywhere on the planet.
