"Cap Centre Moments" Tribute Sign, Prince & Grateful Dead



This tribute sign features a photo of famed musician, Prince, above a caption that reads, "The Grateful Dead performed a record 28 times at the Capital Centre. 17 sold out concerts were etched in stone by Prince (7), Beach Boys & Chicago (5), Bruce Springsteen (4) and Elvis Presley (1)", on vinyl decals applied to a sheet of red powder coated aluminum attached to both sides of the piece. The aluminum is attached to a frame comprised of a pair of upright lattice style beams made from tube steel. The larger gauge tubing has black finish, while the inner, zig-zagged, steel has yellow finish. These beams extend upwards at opposing angles from a 15" square mounting plate to which they are welded. The mounting plate has 4, 3/4", bolts for fastening to a surface. An aluminum box at the very top of the piece reads "CAP CTR" and has an internal light fixture. The lower aluminum box reads, "MOMENTS", and contains a pair of fluorescent lights to backlight the word on either side. These will likely need rewiring to function as much of the wiring was removed or cut upon salvaging. This sign is in good salvaged condition with cosmetic flawing, such as rust formation in areas where the finish has worn, crackled decals, and scuffing and scratching throughout. Rust has eaten through the corner of the tubing of one of the black uprights but has not compromised the structural integrity of the sign. One of the light covers of the lower light box is missing and will need replacement. This sign was salvaged from the Boulevard at the Capital Centre, a shopping center in Largo, Maryland. This mall and items from it are featured on Season 11, Episode 5, of the Diy Network show, "Salvage Dawgs". Weight: 418 lbs. Item Measurements: 46.63(L) x 27.25(W) x 143(H)
