Macalester College – Janet Wallace Fine & Performing Arts Center

The Fall of 2012 “brought down the curtain” for completion of the Janet Wallace Fine & Performing Arts Center Renovation at the Macalester College Campus. As the last building priority of the Step Forward campaign, Superior Painting & Decorating was pleased to have opportunity to have a share in this project which consisted of reusing the existing structure along with the addition of new construction.

Finishes included interior painting of walls, catwalks, and exposed ceiling areas. High performance coatings were applied at ornate steel areas and as finish to Level 5 wall areas. Intumescent coatings were applied at exposed steel of Light Monitors with “Blackout” coatings through-out the Theatre.
