Acme Scenic Arts goes Hollywood

Acme Scenic Arts has been producing sets, drops and props for 30 years. Its well-known projects include Dayton’s/Macy’s Christmas Shows, Bachmann’s Flower Shows, Prime videos and many feature films shot locally.
After devoting herself for five years to Artista Bottega — the center for wonderfully curated art and craft work — owner Nance Derby is refocusing on Acme and has landed a highly demanding contract with Plantscape, Inc. to produce 1,238 branches with 18 leaves on each delicately spray-painted on both sides in 11 colors — all for a new Universal Studios California theme park ride based on The Secret Life of Pets.
Ironically, the maple branches come from China, but the job is too demanding for Chinese companies to take it on.
