On May 1, 2013 I released the first commemorative print from my Ohio River Bridges Project series. I chose to start the series of commemorative prints with this particular image because I wanted to pay homage to the men and women, both past and present, who build America. By taking an image from The Ohio Bridges Project currently being built by the Walsh Construction Company, and using an antique style to process it, I hoped to connect the past and present in a single image.
The subject matter in this image is a steel caisson that was used in the foundation phase of The Ohio River Bridges Project, Downtown Crossing, in Louisville, Kentucky. The work on the bridge’s foundation is moving along nicely and there are only a few more of these caissons to be installed as the foundation rises from the river. I liked the way the barge number, the life preserver and the caisson itself emphasized a circular element while the cranes, cables and bridge above the barge relied on triangles for continuity. The figures in the image allow us to see the scale of the caisson while also referencing the labor it takes to build it.
The size is 12″ x 12″ and it is printed on .040 thick aluminum with a mounting block attached to the back. The print arrives ready to hang. The price for the 12″ x 12″ version is ($99.99) with two additional sizes of 18 ” x 18″ ($229.99) and 24″ x 24″($399.99) also available. All prints are hand engraved with my signature in the aluminum on the reverse side and are ready to hang. I am limiting the First Edition of 12″ x 12″ prints to 150 prints. Each First Edition print will be numbered in sequence. First Edition 18″ x 18″ prints are limited to 50 prints and 24″ X 24″ prints are limited to 10 Prints. In addition to the numbered series prints I am offering one and only one, 48″ x 48″ First Edition print for ($1799.99). After these quantities are filled the print will be retired and no further prints will be made.
I handle all printing and shipping myself to assure that the highest standards are maintained throughout the process. The printer I use is located here in Louisville and holds to the highest standards of their trade which is why I use them. I am also a proponent of buying local which makes choosing them a good fit for me. There is also a 30 day refund policy if you are not satisfied with the actual product. Upon satisfactory return I will issue a refund for the cost of the print. Return shipping will not be refunded; only the price of the print itself is covered by this guarantee.
