Overview

Triptych of hand-blown glass rondel compositions on 7' H x 2' W stainless steel panels in the main stairway area along with a 6' W x 3' H panel in the main lobby of a new urgent care clinic & medical office building on the Westside of Santa Cruz, CA

Goals

To beautify the main lobby & main stairway spaces by adding color & visual interest. Additionally with the stairway artwork, it was to pull visitors eyes away from & distract from noticing the earthquake brace that was made mandatory in the construction of the clinic.

Process

The artist worked closely with the project manager at PAMF as well as the architect & construction from design through fabrication & installation.
