Just Let Looking Look, 2011

Kim Brown
(American, born 1954)

Location: Helen Baller Elementary, Camas

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Kim Brown's Just Let Looking Look uses images of a big blue sky and vivid green grass as filters on multiple windows, to encourage discovery and reflection. Benches made of Douglas fir stumps and a maple tree that is visible through a window's soothing imagery also aim to promote contemplation in the children who walk through those hallways.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Camas School District.
