Grand Rapids Skyline Mega-Pan

Dave Thompson's avatar Dave Thompson

The "Grand Rapids Skyline Mega-Pan" is photographic art celebrating the spirit and growth of Grand Rapids. Two years and 400 hours in the making, it is art that that gives viewers a sense of pride they can feel. Plus, the scale at ground level is breathtaking. By getting close enough to touch it, you appreciate the technical challenges in creating a photographic image 60 feet from end to end, and still be able to pick out individual people on rooftops. Viewers can walk its full length, discovering details they may have never before noticed in the Grand Rapids skyline.
