Artists designed, fabricated, and installed pieces throughout the complex — including mosaic, cast bronze and concrete, inlaid tile “carpets,” and art glass. Inspiration came from the flora and fauna specific to the site (as outlined in the IDNR biological surveys). The Prairie School heavily influenced the architecture of the complex so our work was filtered through our understanding of Arts and Crafts materials and aesthetic sensibilities.
