AMERICAN PAINTING CONTRACTOR • November/December 2014 21
olor is a powerful thing. The color of a sports jersey,
for instance, immediately creates a bond between fans
and draws lines against rivals. Swirls of color hanging on
the walls of an art museum can create powerful emotions
and demand high prices.
For these unique sports and art projects, it was the
background color that made a statement. Contractors on
these high-profile projects talked with APC about the
demands of their clients and the trade tricks they use to
keep these customers coming back year after year.
Make a Splash

Makes a Big Statement
