Art Studio Overview:

RDG Dahlquist Art Studio, in conjunction with "Wright on the Park," was commissioned to restore the largest ornamental urn ever designed by architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. The monumental form is cast in color impregnated glass-fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC). At over six feet square, it is an exact re-creation of one included on the exterior of the Park Inn Hotel, part of a major architectural restoration and now returned to Wright's only surviving hotel design. The Park Inn Hotel is part of a major urban revitalization project for Federal Avenue streetscape and plaza in the center of Mason City, Iowa.
