Description
"Garden Wreath", suspended from the ceiling of the entry foyer, is an ellipse approximately 34' long of gilded and coppered aluminum leaves, images and text. The piece introduces the "Garden of Knowledge" metaphor the artist carries through all three of his works, that the library is a place where people explore, uncover and learn. Images and words are tucked among leaves inviting discovery.
