Making The Most Of One’s Marquee

Allen Michaan, owner of the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, California, posts his political views for hundreds of thousands to see. The theater’s marquee faces the MacArthur Freeway (I-580).
The Flickr page where these images are housed is maintained as a public service by David Gans, author, musician and longtime host of the syndicated radio program, “Grateful Dead Hour.” He is also an Oaklander.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
