Finally! The Donor Wall display and graphics are installed and looking good. This display honors the people and families who have made significant donations to the Lee's Summit Educational Foundation's Generations fund. This was a long, but very gratifying project. We worked all day to install the more than 70 colorful leaves, trunk and etched panels. Here is a closer look:
The display fills a big space...more than 10 feet by 8 feet. The wall is located in the soaring lobby of the Stansberry Leadership Center. The idea was to use this as an opportunity to create a beautiful sculpture accented by the recognition panels.
I used a variety of materials in the wall design. Metal leaves and trunk, Rowmark panels, acrylic panes and vinyl decals are the main elements.
The bottom of the wall begins at about 5 feet off the ground. So, lots of space and the challenge of creating something that people will be looking up to view.
From the second floor, the Donor Wall shows off all the components in a colorful way.
The leaves are powdercoated a variety of colors. Each leaf has two spacers that offset it from the wall. This creates interesting shadows and depth throughout the light-filled lobby.
The panels are a metal-looking Rowmark material. A laser was used the etch the names into each panel.
Clear acrylic panels rise above the copper-colored name panels. This helps enhance the depth and interest of the wall.
