In my last post about hidden picture hanging hardware, I showed off this awesome metal print of an abandoned theater:
At the time I couldn't find the name of the theater or the artist, because I thought they were both from Tennessee. Fortunately I had the chance to ask the homeowner again, and it turns out that this is a photo by Walter Arnold of the Columbia Theater in Paducah, KY.
The cool thing about this photo is that it kicked off a community effort to save the old theater, and if you want to help out, you can head over to their website and buy a T-shirt.
Arnold also has a very nice coffee-table book available (the homeowner had a copy). Looking at some of the other images, you can see that the seashell shape over the stage is completely gilded, which is what gives it that amazing glow. The photographer must have put a lot of time into his photo; it looks like he brought floodlights to show off the golden proscenium.
If you have a big metal print you'd like help hanging up, let us know. We love this stuff.
