Durfee|Regn & Brian Roettinger
Gallery Row Signage Project
2009


Project Area:  CT-Historic Core
Project:  Gallery Row Signage Project
Project Location:  Main & Spring streets between 2nd & 9th streets
Project Type:  CRA/LA Initiated

Description:

Twenty-five street light signs in conjunction with gallery window decals and a new Gallery Row logo create a distinct visual identity while reflecting the area’s historical and contemporary character. The Gallery Row street signs, made of ultra-light aluminum honeycomb panels from the aerospace industry, create “dashed-lines” defining the perimeter of Gallery Row. The sleek design clearly directs visitors through the clusters of galleries and creative industries within the district. Support of this project underscores the important role arts-related businesses play in revitalizing Downtown.
