Color Fuses

Color Fuses

Color Fuses consists of 35 bands of painted color and corresponding illumination wrapping the base of the Minton-Capehart Federal Building. Commissioned by GSA’s Art in Architecture program in 1974, the piece emerged from collaboration between Glaser and building architect Evans Woolen, who shared the goal of making the austere building more appealing to the general public.  Color Fuses celebrates the interplay of color and light to make the stark, heavy building appear to float weightlessly.
