This two-part mosaic mural, bookending the bridge at the Vermont Street basin of the Downtown Canal, consists of hundreds of handcrafted tiles meant to create a visual dialogue between the viewer and the environment. The circular motif mirrors the ripples and waves of the water and the colors reflect the rich palette of the canal area. Zech created and glazed the tiles in her studio and hand-applied them to the bridge site.
The artist, Barbara Zech, works out of her Indianapolis, IN studio.
