Taking the old and making the new A fundraising and donor recognition program.
We developed a distinctive way to recognize donors to a new $41 million renovation of the storied Amphitheater at the Chautauqua Institution.
We designed a series of sculptural monoliths, crafted from limestone and stainless steel and etched with donor names. The monuments feature historic images that trace the evolution of the structure.
The Amphitheater is the center of the Chautauqua experience. The new “Amp” replaced a previous incarnation that had fallen into disrepair.
We developed the idea of “Chautauqua’s Promise,” a capital campaign to finance the construction of the new Amphitheater.
Campaign signage on the Chautauqua grounds, incorporating notable speakers’ quotes from over the decades.
…and environmental installations
…which featured the construction of an oversized Amphitheatre bench. (They raised the required funds eight months ahead of schedule.)
