Ohio Star: Thompson Library
72″ x 48″
The Thompson Library is the geographic and academic heart of The Ohio State University. A recent renovation opened up several of the interior spaces bringing light to the stacks of books. One striking feature of the new feature is a glass staircase that allows students easy access to that large, wood-paneled study rooms on the second floor. This staircase, and the glass-walled floors behind it, form the subject of this photoquilt. The green glass, warm wood tones, and bright interior lights create a warm palette with contrasting lines from the stairs and railing. This quilt was on display at the Homeport Gallery in October 2015.
