Hello Dolly Backdrop – Design & Internet Research by Art Yelton – Photoshop Design & Layout – Frank H. Jump

This collage was used as a backdrop for a revival of Hello Dolly in 2001. My dear friend Art Yelton was the director and musical director. Yelton found all of the source images on the Internet, printed them out, and designed the basic cut and paste layout by hand (and fortunately saved all of the URLs). After receiving the prototype, I downloaded all of the digital files (mostly from the Library of Congress website) and created a digital version on Photoshop. This job was done during the time I was undergoing chemo and radiation therapies and kept me out of trouble. It was a labor of love. Enjoy. The reproduction for the backdrop was twenty by forty feet.
