Dennis Bateman
Executive Producer

Dennis is an Executive Producer at Ideum. With over three decades of creating educational program development and leading exhibit development design, planning, and fabrication, Dennis has headed teams that have created dozens of exhibitions both in the United States and New Zealand.

His career at museums and science centers having begun as a gallery attendant, Dennis learned his craft from the ground up and across departments, giving him a keen eye for what works for both the visitor, and the client, with respect to messaging, engagement, appeal, and durability.

His work has been on projects—and budgets—both large and small, and created for durations that were temporary, permanent, and traveling, at science centers, museums, zoos, children’s museums and visitor centers. If you’ve been in museums from Pittsburgh to Orlando to Connecticut, Arkansas or Wellington, New Zealand, you’ve likely seen and engaged with Dennis’ work.
