Bernal Library Art Project
The new artwork is inspired by elements of the former mural by Arch Williams, representing an open book with pages flowing out from the center.
The concept for the artwork starts from the center out, transforming into the four elements. On the left is fire represented by clouds and sunset colors and earth represented by golden hills. On the far right is air, represented by clouds and sky forms and water represented by waves.
In the center of the book, the flow of elements are woven into a circle representing the unity of ideas and community.
The book element is a cast bronze relief approximately 4” deep and 12’ long with a heated patina finish reflecting an overlapping transparency of the painted tile elements.
