B Street Theatre in Sacramento is launching a fundraising/public artwork that honors the patrons of the theatre, features the talent of local artists and creates a unique gathering space between The Sofia entertainment venue and the new Fort Sutter Hotel.
The 4,000 square foot wall adjacent to the hotel courtyard will become a giant portrait gallery, lit at night and highly visible from the hotel room windows. Patrons can commission portraits of themselves, loved ones or a public figure they admire. Portraits created by local artists will be scanned, enlarged and printed on Dibond Aluminum up to 4’x6’ and installed in a mosaic pattern. The patrons will keep the original artworks and a website will document the artists’ names and the portrait subjects.
Approximately 25 artists will be selected to participate. Samples of their works will be listed on a website linked to the B Street Theatre fundraising page. Patrons will select the artist they wish to work with. Artists may work from photographs or live model sessions.
