When renovating Arc to get it ready to open in early 1997 there was an industrial steel frame above the entire bar area, left over from the jailhouse days. We covered it in paper mache faces made by volunteers. They were a bit crazy but distinctive.
At the end of 1998 we took down the whole thing to open up the space more, as part of the renovations to widen the cafe and extend into the sculpture studio.
