Description

Dora De Larios designed this colorful ceramic tile mural in 1973 as the building was being constructed into the library’s overall plan. The artwork is featured at the library entrance and continues inside the lobby. Red and black glazed tiles outline a curved form in which a multi-colored band of tile is centered. The fluid shape wraps around the outer wall into the inside of the library.
