Ford's Theatre Grand Valance

CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGE

In the Fall of 2002, we were engaged to paint a new Grand Valance for Washington, DCs historic Fords Theatre. The original (top of upper photo), painted on linen and probably dating from the early 1960's, had significant water damage, paint binder failure, and fabric dry rot. The new 10 X 40 piece (bottom of upper photo), painted with latex, vinyl, and casein paints on heavy weight cotton canvas (duck), reproduces the exact layout of the original, and much of it is a stroke-for-stroke copy.

AS DISPLAYED AT EVENT

2 identical screens were commissoned by Ken Derr & Sons for a public event in Arlington commemorating the one year anniversary of the events of 9/11.  Each screen measured 30' X 60', making the average letter 6' tall.  For the event, the screens hung opposite each other on a scaffolding erected in the park on the Virginia side of the Key bridge, as seen in the now famous Washington Post photo.
