The art work is named ‘Reflection’ and occupies the south corner of the Concert Hall building on the Fort Lewis College campus. It is inspired by the soft, colorful and iconic landscapes surrounding Durango and the Fort Lewis College. Wrapping around two brick
facades, the installation partly eliminates the corner and parapet of the concert hall introducing analternative tectonic solution to the building volume.
With hundreds of individual and unique components, the art piece appears to be in motion and constantly changing. It represents the mobility and dynamic which this college has to offer as a center of cultural development and environmental appreciation.
The choice of vibrant colors is a homage to the picturesque Durango landscape while providing an opportunity to celebrate multiplicity, diversity and integration on the Fort Lewis campus. With its fluid forms and landscape of colors, the art piece welcomes its visitors, guests, and the local community to campus and the concert hall.
We would like to thank Mary Lyn and Richard Ballantine for their vision, support and dedication towards the realization of this project.
