September 5, 2013...WHAT A BLAST! The 20th reunion of the filming of "The Shawshank Redemption" took place over Labor Day weekend in Mansfield, Ashland, Upper Sandusky, and throughout Richland County, Ohio. My wife Carol and I were given the "Red Carpet" treatment all weekend long!
I want to thank Jodie Puster-Snavely for putting on this event and inviting me to be a part of it. I am truly grateful, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
To Bob Gunton(Warden Norton) and James Kisicki (Bank Manager), it was and absolute pleasure meeting both of you. Thank you for letting me share the "limelight" with you.

1/19/11...FINALLY! Delivery of the CCJJC pieces was made on 1/17/11 and installation completed on 1/18/11. You can view slideshows at the CCJJCC Project page.
I want to thank Mike Thomas and Clifton Woodard of Justice Planning Associates for the opportunity to showcase my work. Many thanks to Mike Christ, Dave Robar, and Damien Thomas atVocon. Also, thank you to Josh Eiskamp and the folks at West Shore Distributors for the custom stretcher frames, and to "Bob the Installer" for doing an excellent job affixing the pieces to the walls.
A special "Thank you" to my brother, Tod Mann, for his ingenuity with creating a system to help with the frame brackets and wall locking system. It made it an easier job for "Bob the Installer". And, to my brother-in-laws, Joe Yu, and Quang Truong for all your help getting the pieces to their final destination. Thank you.
Most of all, Thank You to my wife, Sau Mei (Carol), for all your love and support (and putting up with my B.S. and bitching), this project could not have been attempted nor completed without all your hardwork. As "Bob the Installer" pointed out, "...that's the artist, but THAT'S THE BOSS!" Thank you and I love you.
