"Working with the expert team at Peters Studios is always a pleasure. The studio´s team helped me realize my vision for these projects, creating the vivid colors of my works "Wave of Knowledge" and "Open Door", adding inspirational icons for the educational journey. The team at the studio made the fabrication of these large scale works easy and fun."

DESCRIPTION: “Open Door” is sited as a beacon in the Lorain campus landscape. “Wave of Knowledge” extends the metaphor visually across the glass facade, suggesting the beautiful educational journey and boundless exploration expressed in a bright gradient of color.

“Open Door” and “Wave of Knowledge” are crucially present at the threshold of the Richard Desich SMART Center for Microtechnology, a state-of-the-art facility devoted to the exploration of design, technology, and innovation. Both “OpenDoor” and “Wave of Knowledge” are luminous works by night and central icons by day, activating the daily entrance that students and faculty pass through.
