Homer Public Librarybrass sandhill cranes entry doors
These entry doors were a One Percent for the Arts installation. We submitted an array of designs to the arts committee. During this initial round of design, a general crane theme was evident in the proposals turned in by various artists. We were asked to create a design that utilized this motif. The art committee was delighted with our submission featuring a pair of cranes in cattails.

This piece was carefully fabricated using brass and copper, and employed lessons learned during the creation of the Kelp Entry doors at Islands and Ocean Center. Attention to detail, such as placing the brass door handles a little lower for younger readers, is one of the key elements in our design.

This design was created to honor those who helped make the new Homer Library construction possible. It is located in the central courtyard at the entrance to the library. It consists of a run of 500 silver salmon on an undulating stainless steel river, each fish stamped with the name of a donor. The library extends its donor program and we add new fish to the wall several times a year.library slideshowWatch a slideshow featuring installation and detail photos of our brass sandhill crane entry doors and silver salmon donor recognition wall.
