Welch designed history wall at CMMC

Posted by Cory Courtois on May 9, 2016

After the submittal of a variety of research materials provided by a number of Central Maine Community College staff members and students, the Welch Design Team conceptualized and constructed a History Wall to help commemorate the college’s 50th Anniversary.

The project took over three months to complete and measures 60” high and nearly 15½’ long. The wall uses a mix of historical photographs and descriptive text to highlight significant events from the college’s inception in 1964 through present day.

A variety of material was used in the construction of the wall including acrylic, green glass, Chemetal, medium density overlay (MDO) panel, and MBS Standoffs. Photos and images were printed or created with 3M Controltac, Duratex, dusted crystal and clear printable vinyl.

The History Wall was unveiled during a ceremony at CMCC on March 18th as a large group of friends, retirees, alumni and employees looked on.

If you have a story to tell or a brand to promote, give the Team at Welch Sign a call and we will work with you to create a custom sign solution that will get you noticed.
