Shadow box pays tribute to 100 years of Sjostrom & Sons

Online Staff Report

KMK Media Group, MainFraiM and NIBCA recently completed work on a commemorative display to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Sjostrom & Sons, Inc.

The Northern Illinois Building Contractors Association (NIBCA) presented the piece to Sjostrom when the project was completed. KMK Media worked alongside NIBCA as well as MainFraiM, a local company that specializes in custom framing, lighting, sculpture and displays, to complete the project. KMK Media was responsible for providing creative direction and overall management of the project.

The display is a large, handmade wooden shadow box adorned by locally-salvaged construction-themed items that reflect the nature of Sjostrom’s work over the last 100 years. A congratulatory message from NIBCA appears in the center, highlighting the piece.

Sjostrom and Sons specializes in general contracting, construction management and has helped with the design and construction of a vast number of projects over the last 100 years in the stateline area.
