Lynn Imaging’s Monster Color LOVES big graphics. So we were excited to read a story recently published by the Lexington Herald Leader recently about CentrePointe being covered with graphics printed and installed by Monster Color during the Breeders Cup- which is coming to Lexington, Kentucky the end of October. An excerpt from the article is below:
Tom Eblen: Breeders’ Cup Festival to wrap CentrePit with pictures of Lexington scenes and characters
How can Lexington hide CentrePit from Breeders’ Cup visitors later this month?
Well, it can’t. The colossal hole is 40 feet deep, a city block square and has two tower cranes poking out of it.
But the creative team at Cornett advertising is working furiously to make sure visitors see something more interesting than a stalled development.
Clay Gibson and Tim Jones have been gathering photos from the Lexington Herald-Leader, the University of Kentucky and other archives. About 150 of those images will be assembled into a fabric mural that will wrap the CentrePointe fence.
In addition to hiding the weed-rimmed pit, the mural will offer a visual diary of Lexington’s history, culture and characters, along with Randy Steward’s giant hand-lettered words: “Lexington, Kentucky, Horse Capital of the World.”
Lynn Imaging’s Monster Color will print the 7-foot-tall mural in 25-foot sections, for a total of 1,335 feet around the block’s perimeter along Main, Upper, Vine and Limestone streets.
