Crescent Crossing’s stained and dichroic glass windows Poesis are inspired by the Energy of Creation. The colors represent visible light’s full spectrum. The spherical shapes within the windows’ designs reference the spheres of the cosmos, the infinite, wholeness.
The seven vertical panels measure H 12’ x W 2’. The cross window 12’ x 12’. The sliding doors H 12’ x W 16’.
Set in Graceworks Crescent Crossing’s Wholeness if Life Center the goal for Poesis was to create a space that is spiritually, emotionally and physically uplifting. The opportunity was to create a space serving the dual purpose of chapel for the retirement community’s religious services and auditorium for non-Christian and secular events. To accomplish this, we worked with Graceworks’ executive and religious staff on the window’s design and the C. C. Hodgson Architectural Group to help shape the space.
Lead artist Judith Canneto worked closely with Graceworks’ CEO, Bill Serr and his staff to create the design that was spiritually centered, recognized the Lutheran religion and served the secular community. Stephen Canneto worked with architect Richard Kieley to design the sliding glass doors that enabled the space to serve both purposes.

[ manifesto ]
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.
