Las Vegas, NV, USA (February 22, 2012) — They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In the case of the new Las Vegas Mob Museum, that would equate to over 80,000 words. TEA member Color Reflections Las Vegas printed and mounted over 800 photographic prints for the 41,000- square- foot museum newly opened in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Knowing how important the library of photographs are to the experience at the Mob Museum, our company was both excited and privileged to have the opportunity to bring the story of the Mob to life through our graphics,” said Joe Castellano, President Color Reflections Las Vegas. “Our staff put in over 2000 man-hours to color correct, print, mount, cut and paint the vast library of photographs that tell the rich history of the Mob, and visually introduce the visitor to those men and women who played a role in this historical organization.”
Color Reflections began in Las Vegas in August 1995. At that time they were a custom photo lab and digital imaging center. Over the years, they evolved into one of the premier fully Digital Large Format Printers on the West Coast, providing graphics to the gaming, trade show, retail and corporate clients. Color Reflections can produce everything from simple 8×10” prints to larger than life building wraps along with custom fabrication abilities.
Located in the former federal courthouse and United States Post Office, the Mob Museum is housed in a historic building. Completed in 1933 and listed on the Nevada and National Registers of Historic Places, it was one of the 14 courthouses in the nation to hold the Kefauver Committee hearings on organized crime. The 41,000-square-foot Mob Museum includes approximately 17,000 square feet of exhibition space on three floors in addition to a specialty retail store, special event areas, educational areas and office space.
Kim Patterson, project manager for the Mob Museum project had this to add, “Project’s of this size are not unusual for us, but it still surprises me when we use over one ton of mounting sub straights for any single project.”
