After decades of being lost this 15 by 30 foot screen is one of the treasures displayed at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle. The scrim was an extra large yellow pages for local Japanese-American companies. If you failed to pay your bill they painted over your spot. The restoration was guided by the asbestos content of the material – a clear resin-based product holds the pigments in place. The screen now graces the 59 seat Tateuchi Story Theatre at the Wing museum.
I have no real ambition to be a photographer of flowers, but several people had nice things to say about this one from my visit to the Denver Botanic Gardens back in June. So here you go.
