During the pandemic, Anne and Brian’s wedding plans were brought to a sudden halt. Thankfully, they didn’t let this circumstance stop them. While they were rescheduling, they decided to follow their dreams and welcome guests to Lovett Hall at The Henry Ford. The couple fell in love with the painting, Light’s Golden Jubilee and Dedication of Edison Institute by Irving Bacon, painted in 1945. Anne and Brian wanted to use this beautiful dedication as a canvas for their wedding day.
“Henry Ford planned the dedication of his museum complex to coincide with the 50th anniversary in October 1929 of Thomas Edison’s invention of the incandescent lamp. Surprisingly, there were no photographs taken of the Light’s Golden Jubilee banquet, so, in the mid-1930s, Ford asked his staff artist, Irving Bacon, to capture the event in this panoramic painting, which took over a decade to complete” (www.thehenryford.org).
For my history nerd friends, you can view the painting of Lovett Hall at the Museum–take a look here to find out more about the display itself. This is the first time I’ve ever linked a painting into one of my wedding blogs, but I couldn’t resist. It was a work of art woven into Anne and Brian’s wedding day, but the Henry Ford is one of Detroit’s finest treasures. It’s worth the trip, and when you do go, check out this painting:)
