Tin ceiling appreciation post 😍 
The stamped-tin ceilings in Building 944 are part of the original architecture of the space. In 1986 and 1987, David Ireland and his crew of 24 young volunteer artists sandblasted the paint off of the ceilings to restore them to their beautiful original state.

Its not every day you receive something this beautiful in the mail!🔷💙
You may have heard about our year end fundraising campaign—it’s a call to invest in the potential of the creative process through a Headlands membership. To illustrate that potential, we sent sheets of Cyanotype paper to members of our creative community and asked them to participate in the creative process themselves. Today we received a mystery Cyanotype print in the mail! 😱 We love it! Its origin story is unknown, so if you have any info, don’t be shy 🤗
Become a Headlands member today at, and share your Cyanotype prints with us by tagging #partofthepotential
