Project Spotlight: Alabama on 18th

Alabama Theatre conceptDid you know that the Alabama Theatre once had twin vertical signs on Third Avenue North AND on 18th Street? Recently, REV Birmingham, an economic development organization that strives to stimulate business growth and improve quality of life in Birmingham, announced its campaign to shine a new light in Birmingham. 

REV revealed that Alabama Theatre is a finalist for a national preservation grant called Partners in Preservation: Main Streets. If awarded the grant, the historic theater plans to install a replica of the vintage sign that has been missing since the 1950s. The replicated 60-foot, vertical “Alabama” sign would be installed above the double doors that lead to the stage entrance of the theater on 18th Street North and match the iconic Alabama sign at the main entrance to the theater on Third Avenue North.

Alabama Graphics is excited to work with REV Birmingham and support the initiative by designing and installing 4,000 window graphics around the theater. As you can see in the photos below, these vibrant, eye-catching graphics aim to inform the Birmingham community of the campaign and encourage them to work together to shine a new light in Birmingham.
