A Tribute to Orville H. Gibson

Is this cool or what?

On the right is a presentation by Mark Bugnaski, photographer (retired from the Kalamazoo Gazette) that was put on the building at the southeast corner of East Michigan and Burdick in downtown Kalamazoo.

On the left is a photo of the same corner around 1875. Orville’s studio was at 104 East Main St. on the second floor just below the “Business College” sign in 1902 when the Gibson Company was established.

The tribute will still be there for ArtHop in Kalamazoo on September 7. After that it will be taken down.
