A high tech presentation of history
Visitors to the newly-built History Colorado Center are welcomed in the huge, light-filled Anchshutz Hamilton Hall (the Hall) by a spectacular video wall, 29 ½ feet wide and nine feet high, composed of 132 Christie® MicroTiles®. Through its form and content, the video array captures the magnificence of the Colorado landscape. Reinforcing its rich visuals, the array’s irregular shape mimics the skyline of the Rocky Mountains and the graphics of native Indian art.
A large, blank wall dominated the Hall and was “begging for a media treatment” according to Ed Nichols, History Colorado president and CEO, and state historic preservation officer. “As we thought of what could be done with the wall, we were intrigued with the idea of letting the wall tell the museum’s story and be a messaging device for assemblies and visitors.”
