Midwestern University Chapel, Downer’s Grove, IL. Cast glass sculptural mural in rotunda consisting of 24 panels @ 9’H x 4’W with cold-applied pearlized paints. Midwestern University has students from throughout the world. The President of the University wanted artwork for the non-denominational chapel that would be spiritually uplifting while not alluding to any specific religion. These panels represent an uplifting fantasy forest with abstract imagery that is evocative of the local nature and typography. Custom textural elements in the cast glass blend with the multicolored and multilayered translucent paints.
