Garden: A site specific installation by Thomas Lail

Ongoing in the Administration Building Atrium

Garden, Professor Thomas Lail’s oversized rendering of a William Morris wallpaper pattern, scales the trellis of the Administration Building’s glass atrium, reflecting on the history of glassed-in winter gardens, cultivated nature, and the dream of Utopian architectures of transparency. The installation project is supported by the Hudson Valley Community College Foundation’s Stephen L. Hyatt Fine Arts Fund and installed with assistance from the college’s Graphics Department and Physical Plant, and NoName Graphics, Troy.
