This 5000 sq foot vaulted dome mural was a creation for the Minnesota's Largest Candy store location. In creating this domed space, the client wanted to create a destination and location that would be a perfect fit for the 12 life-sized super hero statues that were bought for their store. The goal was to take this blank white canvas and create something that
Creating a space that was inviting and a "wow" factor when people came into the candy store was of utmost importance. The client had purchased a dozen lifesized statues of different super heroes and need a home and space for them to reside in. This is what gave the inspiration for Gotham and beyond. A space that is comprised of some of the worlds greatest urban spaces!
The collaboration on this project was vital in keeping with the spaces demands for a epic mural, yet allowing for the space to retain its space and feel for its intended purpose, a candy store. Having to incorporate the mural with over a dozen lifesized statues incorporated meant we had to constantly create with all elements in mind.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
