Overview

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’.

Goals

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.

Process

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.
