The Mackinac Bridge is one of Michigan's most iconic landmarks. Construction of this 5-mile bridge began in 1954 and by the year 1998 it had over 100 million crossings. This drone photo named, "Don't Look Down," was captured by Tyler of Michigan Sky Media at the perfect time in March of 2018, as the diamond-looking ice was melting. The metal grates that create the inner lanes on the bridge provide a queasy feeling for some but give a thrill for many others. The frame of this art piece is created from the original grates that many of the Mighty Mac's travelers drove on. These grates are over 60 years old and pay tribute to the hard work, dedication, and lives lost during construction.
Buyers will receive a Certificate of Authenticity upon purchase, stating that this is the original 60-year-old grate of the Mackinac Bridge.
Brushed aluminum prints (Fine Art Metals) are printed by Millers Professional Imaging, www.millerslab.com, and grate frames are constructed by Precision Plasma Cutting, precisionplasmacutting.com. To clean your fine art metal, do not use chemicals, cleaners, or abrasive cloths. Instead, use a soft cloth or feather duster. Fine Art Metals do not rust, but leaving them outside will reduce the life of the print.
