11' tall x 23' wide x 2" thick


The mosaic speaks of the university experience as an educational journey, leading one to a desired career. It is accomplished one step at a time. The red/orange/yellow forms represent the many individual stepping stones that together pave the road to success. The graceful blue/green lines offer an overview of the journey, like roads on a map. The lines start on the left with students entering the University of Toledo, then diverge widely on the right as graduates move on to exciting new horizons. The slight aquatic feel and hint of concentric circles suggests the ripple effect of a pebble entering still waters, in this case being the enrichment of society with each graduating class.
