About the Puzzle

An Alameda Puzzle is one of our top requests, so we were excited for the opportunity to team up with artist Larry Hausen on this beauty. We love the colors, rendering of light, and the detail in this exquisite interpretation of the historic Alameda Theatre. This puzzle is 16x20-inches and ribbon-cut. 

About the Artist

Larry Hausen is an Oakland-born and Alameda-raised illustrator and graphic designer. After graduating from California College of the Arts, Larry opened Hausen Design, an office within the Claremont Hotel In Berkeley. He later took an in-house position with the Golden State Warriors to set up their first Creative Services Department and created the Warriors logo introduced in the late ’90s. Larry was instrumental in many aesthetic decisions related to the Oakland Arena renovation, Downtown Practice facility, court, and uniform design.

Under the company name, RuffHaus Design Studio, Larry now has a particular focus on award-winning posters for festivals, fairs, and special events throughout California. For 17 years, he has created the master poster design for the Mountain Mandarin Festival. Larry resides in Cool, a small town in the California foothills where he works from his home and studio. Other work can be found on his website and Instagram.

About the Image

Larry’s passion for hometown theaters began when he and his brothers would walk the mile and a half from their home to the Alameda Theatre. The Vintage California Theatre series is one of many themes Larry has explored. Larry also designed the artwork used to create our Grand Lake Theatre puzzle. Other illustration studies include California Travel, California Surf and Highway 49.

About the Alameda Theatre

The Alameda Theatre is a historic icon of the beloved East Bay island. Alan Ward, 79, who was almost 4 on Aug. 16, 1932, can recall the theater’s grand-opening night, saying, “It was a dramatic and colorful event. I remember the lobby’s glittery lights and the colorful costumes of the usherettes.” A $37 million project to restore and updated the theatre to its current state began in earnest in September 2006.
