A recognition season / March 24, 2015

Creating displays to acknowledge the gifts from benefactors and recognize special individuals has been a sideline for many years. Within the last two years it has really taken off. Here are some samples of some of the latter from this winter.

Below is a retirement gift for a Keurig Green Mountain executive. About 24″ wide, with four layers of transparent acrylic mountains. The design is by Direct Design.

Here’s another brought to us by Direct Design. With a brushed aluminum mast and frosted acrylic “sail” mounted on a wood base with its own waves, this annual Distinguished Citizenship award also has a custom cast UVM bronze seal.

Continuing with work for UVM, this large display in Waterman building honors six staff members each year with the “Our Common Ground” award. With raised brush bronze letters in the heading and laser etched Vermont cherry plaques describing the UVM common values. 2015 winners are shown behind glass, and named on the cast stainless steel plaque upper left. there’s room for about 18 years of these stainless plaques.

And last, another plaque for UVM. This more traditional display honors Andrew Harris, the first black graduate of UVM. Cast bronze on cherry with small “glicee” photograph plaque.
