Architectural Art

Thunder Mountain High School Commons

The art for Thunder Mountain High School was being planned before the walls went up. The artists were asked to work together and with the architects to make art that was integrated with the building. Michael Anderson collaborated with the Architect, Paul Volkers, on the riverine floor and sidewalk through the entry of the school to the parking lot. His inset floor tile river bars accentuated the colored concrete and added an artifact history lesson. His tile was the first three and one half feet of Wayne Price’s Auntie Totem Pole, transitioning from the river to the totem in a metamorphosis of river fauna.

Islands and Oceans Visitor Center is about understanding the maritime environment. The art for this building was conceived as the building went up. The walls and columns were festooned with touchable ceramic sealife and the washed concrete floor used special porcelain aggregates to recreate the feel of a beach. The Flounder and their cloud trails in the floor are directional arrows and the round central column is tiled to be a dock piling.
