Glass mosaic, ceramic
2014, Arts in Transit
The lively and picturesque glass mosaics adorning the colonnade incorporates themes of history, recreation and education using iconic images representative of the Edgewater neighborhood. At the base of each column is a water-band symbolizing Lake Michigan. Stalks of wild rice, indigenous to the area and once harvested by Native Americans, represent the natural attributes of the surrounding area. Sprouting from the rice stalks are charming images of Edgewater’s man-made symbols, such as vintage trains, the historic Edgewater Beach Hotel and Senn High School.
