Projects | Gifford Ewing
In 2010 Infinite Editions printed, spray varnished, built stretcher bars and stretched 531 canvases for photographer Gifford Ewing. The project was commissioned by the JW Marriot Denver at Cherry Creek. Fifteen images were drum scanned from Gifford's 5"x7" black and white negatives. The images featured iconic Colorado locations; including Maroon Bells and the Capital building in downtown Denver. It took over 100 hours to print all of the images, 1,240 feet of canvas, 3,186 cuts into the canvas, 18,054 1/2" staples, and over a mile of strainer stock to build the frames.
The project was completed ahead of schedule and each room at the hotel has a series of three of the 15 images.
