The Robert Hoag Rawlings Library in Pueblo, Colorado is one of the most striking architectural marvels on the Front Range, due in no small part to the generosity of Bob Rawlings, the owner and publisher of The Pueblo Chieftain, southern Colorado’s premier newspaper. The Pueblo City-County Library District wanted to create an exhibit that would capture the astonishing scope of Rawlings’ life, accomplishments, and contributions to the Centennial State.
To that end, we curated, designed, fabricated, and installed an exhibit that would celebrate Bob Rawlings in the library that bears his name. The end result is a design that encapsulates Rawlings’ history, and case fabrication that integrates seamlessly into the already-existing structure.
Some noteable features in this exhibit include:
Engraved Aluminum Portrait
The focal point of the entire exhibit is the custom-engraved, aluminum portrait of Robert Hoag Rawlings. It was an intricate process converting a picture of Robert Rawlings to halftone and milling it out of aluminum, but resulted in a sleek and understated portrait.
