Honor, Courage, Commitment: Marine Corps Art, 1975-2015

The National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, VA, just opened a new gallery dedicated to combat art and we were honored to be invited to the opening. The gallery was very well done with movable walls that were custom designed and built to hold the artwork.

The pieces chosen to be displayed were outstanding. I’m sure it a was difficult task for Joan Thomas, Art Curator for the museum, to select the images to be used from their extensive collection.

The highlight for me was getting to meet some of the artists whose works were displayed, and putting the faces to those names we’ve seen over the years as we have worked with the NMMC collection. I was impressed by how quickly we were made to feel right at home. Thanks again to the museum director, Lin Ezell, for the invitation. – Joe Rudinec

Little Print, Big Sales

This image from the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College was one of 8 from the museum’s collection selected for enhancing guest rooms at the newest lodging establishment in town, The Hotel at Oberlin.

There were a total of 216 matted and framed prints required to be produced, delivered and installed within one month. This was a formidable task, but with Cindy keeping production organized, all went smoothly.

The hotel was fully operational, so the management blocked off one floor a day for the installation, minimizing any inconvenience to guests. We mounted the prints using security hardware, however we chose to use four attachment points instead of the more traditional three point hanging system to provide a very solid attachment and quality feel.

Located right on the main corner in downtown Oberlin and just a block or two from the Allen Memorial Art Museum, The Hotel at Oberlin is a very comfortable and great looking hotel that has been “designed to be one of the most environmentally sustainable hotels in the world”. We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful project! The staff is outstanding, and the in-house restaurant is worthy of a visit.
