Art Studio Overview:

"The Greatest Story Never Told" - This "Art-in-Transit" commission is based on the life of Henry A. Wallace and the establishment of the Country's first soil conservation district.  "Prairie" columns represent the vanishing layer of topsoil and native vegetation.  Narrative terra cotta panels are inset into exterior walls.  Interior glazed ceramic tile murals illustrate Wallace's birthplace and the state of biotechnology in hybrid grain production.
