ALICO ARENA MURALS
One inch porcelain and glass tile
14' x 20' (2 murals)
18' x 26' (center mural)
Three murals for Alico Arena, the home of the Athletic program at FGCU connect imagery with the lush landscape of the Everglades environment with the social activity inherent to the Arena. The designs recognize the virtues of university athletics by recognizing the student athletes who participate in them. The expression of body language and gesture evoke the physical grace, coordination and determination while playing basketball, tennis, golf and baseball.
