How do you covert a historic concert hall into a black tie dinner awards ceremony? Call JSI! Jericho Stage Inc. created a custom built staging solution to deck over-top of the existing seats of Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. This unique design solution extends the existing stage into one large single plane area creating the perfect space for dinner or dancing. The producers of the Horatio Alger Awards along with DAR Constitution Hall management brought in JSI to do the custom staging for the 65th Anniversary Awards Ceremony in April of 2012. The event was a huge success.
Here is a time lapse video showing the build process:
The Sheridan Libraries at The Johns Hopkins University announce the opening of Eureka!: Rare Books in the History of Scientific Discovery at the George Peabody Library in Baltimore. Spanning more than 2,500 years of scientific breakthroughs and including books that date from the late 15th century to the mid 20th century, Eureka! contains highlights from the Dr. Elliott and Eileen Hinkes Collection of Rare Books in the History of Science.
The collection, totaling more than 300 items, provides a kind of roadmap of seminal moments in the history of science and was assembled over two decades by Dr. Elliott Hinkes, an alumnus of the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Hinkes, who died in 2009, maintained a private practice specializing in medical oncology and hematology in the Los Angeles area for more than 30 years and was an associate clinical professor at UCLA.
