DAYTON MASONIC CENTER

SCHIEWETZ AUDITORIUM MAIN DRAPE REPLACEMENT

Built in 1928, the Dayton Masonic Center is was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. Within the Center is the beautiful 1,700-seat Schiewetz Auditorium. Its 39-year old main drape needed to be replaced with a new drape that honored the building’s history.

VENUE: The Schiewetz Auditorium, Dayton Masonic Center
LOCATION: Dayton, OH
DESIGNER: Based on 1920s design
YEAR: 2020

  • After doing research, we found a photo of the main drape from the 1920s to use as a basis for the design.
  • We added a traveler motor to the pipe to allow the drape to split and fly at the same time.
  • Gold trim finished the edges giving the drape and valance a rich, luxurious texture and a nostalgic appeal at an economic price point.
