It is the 50th anniversary for the Portland Trailblazers and we were asked to switch out the photos in the players hallway at the Moda Center,   Working with the Arakawa cable system gives us this opportunity to switch out artwork and continue the timeless presentation.

Portland Trailblazers 50th Anniversary

All hung up

 

This project was in conjunction with Studio Kale_Art.  The artwork is by Eugene, Oregon artist Jenny Gray. Being placed outside the fitness room and  being almost life size was appropriate.  Artwork was printed on canvas and framed in a float frame.

This is always a fun update. The photos are taken on media day by the Trailblazers great marketing team, selected and we then print them. After we have the prints, we finish them by mounting on 3/4″ bamboo with Portland’s eco-conscious display company, Plywerk.

They layout is not easy. It’s a puzzle without a guide, so we move them around quite a bit till it just works. It is a lot of fun when the puzzle is solved.

In addition to new players, Pyramid’s Tap Room at Schonely’s Place inside the Moda Center got a fresh coat of paint and some more photos. We took the old pieces off the wall and after it was ready we did a new layout for the photos, added a more and installed, just in time for the WINNING season opener.

The Jersey case was done a couple years ago, but the light was on it just right, so had to show you. This is a display case for 3 retro jerseys. We wanted them to float in different layers so we worked with bars and cables from Arakawa to make this work.

There is a refreshing update every year

There isn’t a space in the Tap Room that doesn’t scream Rip City.
