Superman Exhibit, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Cleveland, Ohio
The Siegel & Shuster Society was formed to promote and publicize the little known fact that the world’s greatest super hero, Superman, was created right here in Cleveland, Ohio. After restoring the boyhood home of Jerry Siegel to commemorate the spot where Joe Shuster drew the first sketches of the Man of Steel, the society began development of a permanent exhibit at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
Working with display designer Studio Graphique, Brand Décor was instrumental in material selection, graphics, fabrication, and installation of the entire display. The story was told around a life-size figure of Superman using comic book talk bubbles that were digitally printed on ½” PVC and CNC cut to shape. The back wall was highlighted by a silhouette of the Cleveland skyline with LED up-lighting for dramatic effect.
The faux dimensional phone booth created to wrap one of the structural columns in the space featured a lenticular flip graphic showing Clark Kent transforming into Superman. Mounted to the other column, a flat screen display rolls a video presentation on the history of the creation of Superman. A custom shroud for the flat screen was designed and built to replicate the style of television from the 1930’s.
To secure the exhibit, a custom 42” high glass barrier was built and installed around the perimeter. Reader rail panels were fabricated and installed atop the glass barrier to present additional content and donor recognition graphic.
