Stone Wall Preservation





Hartford Public Library

Hartford Public Library selected Jack to create three floor-to-ceiling murals for the newly renovated lobby and third floor Wallace Stevens Conference Room. Seventeen familiar scenes of Hartford are printed 9' high and up to 20' wide onto wallpaper material and adherred to the South and North Walls in an uninterrupted sequence of photography that is truly dazzling in its reality.

PriceWaterhouse Coopers


Another financial services client, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, selected seven of Jack's photographs for wallpaper murals in the corridors of their new headquarters on Church Street in Hartford and are thrilled with the way they add warmth to their workplace culture.

960 Main Street

The Marquee Events selected one of Jack's nighttime skylines of Hartford for a 9'x12' mosaic mural in their Gershon Fox Banquet Room at 960 Main Street. The photograph is divided into twelve 3'x3' sections, framed without mats or glass in thin black frames, and positioned in a cluster with about one inch of white wallspace between each photo to create a strong mosaic-like feeling. The design consultants selected this skyline from Jack's extensive collection for its strong magenta, mauve, gold and black tones which advance the Art Deco design of the room.






Open Solutions installation


Open Solutions, a banking services corporation in Glastonbury, has purchased more than a hundred New England landscape photographs from Jack McConnell to hang throughout their lobbies, conference rooms and offices. Clients from all over the world come to Glastonbury for software training, and often don't have time to visit New England. So the photographs give them an experience of the regional beauty...harbors, waterways, farms, forests, historic sites, gardens and orchards.


If you download Jack's bio, you can see many other companies that collect Jack's images, from hospitals, banks and accounting firms to golf clubs, colleges, and medical offices.




Hook and Ladder Restaurant


The new Hook and Ladder Restaurant on Main Street in Hartford commissioned Jack to shoot a fire truck and the skyline of Hartford and merge the two images in Photoshop. They were printed into large framed photos and hung on the walls alongside fire station artifacts such as coats, boots and ladders.




One version was priinted on translucent vinyl at Joseph Merritt and burnished onto glass partiitions between the dining area and the ktchen, allowing the chef to keep an eye on the dining patrons, and guests to watch the food preparation.


Bus Wrap Banner

It's fun to see all the new surfaces we can print our photos on these days. Besides the wallpaper murals for the Hartford Public Library, here's a Bus Wrap created for the Double A Bus Company in association with the Wethersfield Historic Society. Jim Charbonnier was the creative director,
and it was printed by Joseph Merritt. It really stopped traffic on its run through the historic district of Wethersfield.



Connecticut Tourism Banner

The trade show banner for our booth at the Connecticut Tourism show was also produced by Joseph Merritt on a laminated opaque vinyl. The colors were so brilliant and clear it could be seen across the Convention Center.
