Sandy’s Grosh

We interrupt this regularly scheduled Grosh blog for an important report from a long time Grosh employee who wants to share a little of her experience working at this company that helps bring events and productions to life!

Hello!  My name is Sandra Guillen I am the Customer Service Representative here at Grosh Backdrops and Drapery.  Just before I started working at Grosh, coming up on 8 years now, I can remember looking at the job description: “Receptionist needed to support the front desk and administrative tasks for a backdrop rental company.”   I thought, what’s a backdrop?! After some extensive research through every Broadway hit, television show, and movie known to man, I finally realized what that large painted thing was behind the performers! I guess they had never been something I ever thought about as a fan and audience member.   I realized how they actually are a significant part of setting the mood and creating the environment whether it’s theatrical or, for me, at a concert!

Backdrops Meets the Fibonacci Spiral

Apr 17, 2015

Not only are Grosh backdrops shining on your schools’ stages around the country, but they are shining in the classrooms as well. Specifically, at Levi Bemis Elementary School in Rialto, CA in Angela Hoover’s 5th grade GATE (Gifted And Talented Education) Classroom! Mrs. Hoover used Grosh’s Time Warp Backdrop # ES7616 as inspiration for teaching her students about the significance of the Fibonacci Spiral and its influence on both the worlds of math and art. Her students proceeded to create their own inspired works using the mathematic formula that is used to build this form. Here are a few of the incredible results. Needless to say you have inspired us as well. There is no limit to what art can do, go Bobcats!

From celebrities to major retailer brand sponsored events and global franchises to talented noteworthy artists, Grosh customs takes it all on with finesse and efficiency. What else can you expect from the biggest, oldest and best in the business?
