Gallery Panorama
Portrait Gallery Panorama
This panoramic view of the gallery from the entrance shows all six portraits. The portrait lights were hand built out of PVC pipe and wood, and then painted a brass color. Behind the curtain at the far end was a hinged panel, painted to look like a brick wall. If a patron looked behind the curtains, they would see the wall. After the effect, the panel was pulled back and the curtains were subsequently opened by a hidden operator.
