A quick sneak peak at The Art Institute of Chicago’s banner that promoted Kings, Queens and Courtiers, an exhibition that illustrated how late Gothic art of the 1500s gave way to early Renaissance art in France. The Art Institute of Chicago was the exhibition’s only North American venue and included some spectacular works from the Louvre, Musee National du Moyen Age, and the Musee National de la Renaissance.read more Posted in Behind the Scenes

A new addition is approved and ready for public consumption: just remember, moderation. SFMOMA’s exhibition “How Wine Became Modern” visually tells the story of how a new wine culture has emerged since 1976 and established viticultural priorities such as globalization, innovation, and diversification. More importantly, it has affected what we all drink at the dining table.
So pour some of the good stuff using Etienne Meneau’s venous wine carafe featured on these banners and read on.read more Posted in Behind the Scenes
Life of a BetterWall Banner: Part I: The Arrival
With new banners arriving almost weekly from one our 32 partner art museums, we’re often asked how their banners go from city streets to our website and on to your walls.
Often when banners arrive, it’s like the proverbial Christmas morning. We open up boxes of banners without any knowledge of what they will look like. We’re often delighted by what Santa brings and like any lucky child on Christmas, we immediately begin cataloguing our good fortune: banners in great, sellable condition either begin the flattening process or are boxed carefully, all other banners are set aside in our recycling area to be sorted out later. Then, we’ll snap a few photos of our new prize possessions and share them with our colleagues, making sure that we identify the image reproduced on the banner so that we can contact the image rights holders to request additional copyrights allowing us to sell the banners on behalf of our museum partners.
