I know I blogged about this earlier, but I thought I would include the official press release from the Embassy. Â Alos, I’d like to mention that due to hanging problems, the photo of Freimann Square, the bottom left at dusk, has had to be removed. Â I am trying to press for a solution as I think it’s one of the best of the batch.
Press release from the Embassy:
Embassy Harrison Street windows feature downtown Fort Wayne destinations
The Embassy Theatre kicked off the summer season with a series of themed windows along Harrison Street. Local interior designer Katie Hartzog of Hartzog Interiors created the windows using a “Play Downtown” theme with photographs taken of downtown Fort Wayne locations and the Embassy Theatre. Photographers Stephen L. Parker, Steve Vorderman and Steve Linsenmayer provided the shots, Digital Reprographics provided the enlarged photos and Heritage Fabrics provided the fabric pieces covering the floor of the windows. [Webmaster’s note: All of the photos are mine with the exception of the four or five in the Embassy Theatre themed window which were provided by the Embassy Theatre and Vorderman and Linsenmayer.]
The window scenes take onlookers through a colorful picture walk beginning with The Fort Wayne Art Museum and Firefighters Museum to scenes from the Three Rivers Festival and Chalk Walk, Fort Wayne Parks flora and fauna, Artlink and Science Central, three iconic downtown eateries; Club Soda, Coney Island and Henry’s, shots of the interior and exterior of the Embassy Theatre, Fort Wayne city scenes and, of course, the new Parkview Field and TinCaps team.
The windows along Harrison and Jefferson will be open for onlookers to view until October 2009.
