Description

Bbubbles is a 21 panel, glass window full of bubbles with Zoell's signature stick figures hiding in the corners. The artwork dramatizes the purpose of the facility as a public pool and harmonizes with the interior color scheme. “There is a careful balance to be struck between the location and the artwork,” says Zoell. “When the two elements work in harmony, an opportunity for positive community impact develops, giving art and architecture the power to create a dynamic and memorable urban environment."
