Award-winning artist Jeffrey Lake has been commissioned by Doosan Infracore Portable Power to paint two original works in the company’s booth during ConExpo this weekin Las Vegas to celebrate the 136-year legacy of Ingersoll Rand. Lake will be painting in Booth G130 in the Gold lot beginning Tuesday, March 11.
Lake will paint two 5- by 5-foot murals during the week. Each will represent the Ingersoll Rand contribution to worldwide economic progress. The first mural will depict construction of the Hoover Dam and the second of the Chunnel in Europe. Each mural will prominently show Ingersoll Rand products used in those projects.
Both murals will be positioned near several Ingersoll Rand products being displayed in the outdoor booth. Products that will be showcased along with the murals include the full line of Ingersoll Rand mobile generators the HP750 air compressor, the new MVS-6 mobile video system, and the new L20 combination light tower and mobile generator. Also displayed will be an antique Type Twenty air compressor from the 1920s. Upon completion of the murals at the close of the show, the original paintings will be displayed at Doosan Infracore Portable Power’s new headquarters in Statesville, N.C.
The Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam situated between Arizona and Nevada. It was completed in 1935, and for the following 10 years was the world’s largest electric-power producing facility and world’s largest concrete structure. Ingersoll Rand air compressors and generators were used during its four-year construction.
The Chunnel, the undersea tunnel of the English Channel at the Strait of Dover, connects Great Britain to France. Ingersoll Rand air compressors and lubrication equipment were used during the seven-year project. The Chunnel officially opened in 1994.
Jeffrey Lake and his brother Whitney Lake are known as the Brush Brothers. Both are graduates of Indiana University with degrees in fine arts and have more than 40 years experience collectively. Jeffrey was awarded the prestigious Designer of the Year Award in 2004.
Doosan Infracore’s acquisition of Ingersoll Rand Utility Equipment last year makes Doosan Infracore one of the top 10 global manufacturers of construction and utility equipment and related attachments.
