An Artist’s Tribute to First Responders

 

Light Pillars 1

Sept. 11, 2001 will forever be part of American history. For New York artist, Karin Giusti, 9/11 is the reason her fiancé, Steven Schwarz, was taken from her too soon. Schwarz was a first responder firefighter at Ground Zero who later died from health complications.

Giusti has been preparing for an exhibition in New York City that will show at the Smack Mellon non-profit arts organization from Sept. 24 to Nov. 8. The exhibition, titled Three Seasons at Black Forest Farm, will be a monumental art installation in memory of Schwarz. It will consist of a series of 10 to 15 light columns with structural components and illuminated photo membranes.

She’s constructing the columns from LexJet 8 Mil Absolute Backlit polyester film. “It’s amazing,” Giusti says, “it doesn’t dent or crumple. It’s so easy to handle.” The instant-dry, matte-finish coating on the film produces a wide color gamut for brilliant colors and sharp details. “The product has to be easy to handle since I’m printing the images onto the paper and then creating a structure with it,” she says.

With this work, Giusti’s goal is to emphasize the need to create a National First Responders Day. The exhibit will focus on the plight of all first responders.

“Often, 9/11’s forgotten victims are struggling to get adequate medical attention,” says Giusti, who is a professor at Brooklyn College. Guisti, who holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Yale University of Art, has exhibited work internationally and hopes this latest installment will capture the public’s attention.

You’ve asked for the educational tools to help you discover the opportunities that latex printing can provide. Today, we’re introducing our Latex Applications page, a one-stop online page that offers business-building ideas and explores the many creative uses and benefits of latex-printable products.

While many of our business partners rely on vinyl products for banners, billboards, outdoor signage and more, all of those applications — and many more — can be printed on latex-compatible media that’s less costly, easier to use and environmentally friendly.

Outdoor-Signage-04-24-15_01Throughout our Latex Applications page, you’ll find quick overviews and images of the products in use paired with short educational videos and direct links to purchase pages.

In the videos, LexJet product guru Jeff Leto talks about the industry’s latest emerging trends, product highlights, installation suggestions, terminology definitions, and lots of easy-to-understand tips for getting the most out of the media in different environments.

You’ll also learn how the products can be used in a variety ways while helping you save time and money, and how to relate those benefits to your customers.
