Press release from the issuing company

A creation inspired by the TRIPOD at Writers Room program and produced on an Océ Colorado 1640 Printer

Melville, N.Y. – Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., recently celebrated the unveiling of the much-anticipated mural inspired by the TRIPOD at Writers Room program co-founded by Drexel University and Canon Solutions America. The TRIPOD participants' writing and images were incorporated into a custom-designed mural, which was printed locally by Color Reflections on an Océ Colorado 1640 Printer and installed this week at the university.

TRIPOD at Writers Room community and student participants pose for a photo in front of mural printed on the Océ Colorado 1640 and installed in front of Drexel University’s English Department.

The Writers Room community was joined by friends and family on June 3, 2019 for the public debut of the mural, which is installed in the hallway outside the English Department. The intimate celebration began with opening remarks from Rachel Wenrick, associate teaching professor of English and director of Writers Room, and Interim Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education, Shivanthi Anandan, PhD. The designer, Patty West, remarked, "This project meant a lot to the members of the Writers Room and it was a very special moment to finally see our vision come to life, surrounded by the people who supported it and helped make it happen."

Said Color Reflections president and owner Eric Berger, "When Canon Solutions America approached us about taking on this project for our neighbors at Drexel University, we were very excited. Creating adhesive-backed vinyls for wall coverings and murals is one of our specialties and we knew we could provide a mural that the students could be proud to show their friends and family. We printed the mural on Canon's large-format Océ Colorado, as we have for similar projects, and we could not be happier with the result."

"Canon Solutions America was proud to support this great customer initiative and delighted that our digital technology is helping bring attention to wonderful work created by students," said Rob Reddy, Senior Vice President, Large Format Operations. "The Océ Colorado 1640 provides exceptional quality and Canon's UVgel technology is perfect for these types of printed wallcoverings. Drexel University is sure to have a high-quality mural to show off for a very long time."
