Overview

Materials: Steel, Glass
Dimensions: 30’ height, 60’ Width, 4’ Depth
Based on the renown HARELQUIN pattern, this mural was created specifically for the Cary Arts Center’s flytower. The work references the icons of theater, and dramatically changes as the sun passes overhead and lights illuminate the tower at night.

Goals

The artists worked with the Architects who wanted the flytower exterior to be "jewel like" and were able to achieve this through the use of colored glass.

Process

Harlequin was collaborative effort by Jim Hirschfield, Sonya Ishii, Norie Sato and the architectural team from Clearscapes.
