About This Piece

Boulder-based artist Garrison Roots was selected to create an epoxy resin terrazzo art floor for the new Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center.  To create his design, Roots layered patterns and images from nature (water, fire, tree rings and a hurricane) to create a richly colored, interlaced work that defines this public place of interaction and ever-changing community.” Roots’ goal was to activate a thought process and invite dialogue regarding subject matters ranging from beauty to indifference, from education to faith, from history to investigation, from action to reality.  Roots hopes that his artwork reaches far beyond the boundaries of words and becomes a contemplative centerpiece for the facility.
