Art in the Stairwell

If you follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook, you probably saw a few previews of some new artwork in what may seem like an unlikely place: our north stairwell.

The piece, which was created and installed by artist Bede Clarke, is titled Migration.

 Migration is an acknowledgment of the restlessness which is such an integral part of the human spirit.  It is a nod toward our process of “becoming” even when this movement occurs against a backdrop of struggle and confusion.  While our longing and searching can cause a good deal of friction within us, what can we do but embrace it – it is a part of who we are and it has a beauty all its own.  As with much art, Migration is autobiographical, always I feel I am becoming, becoming; dreaming of being.
