Artists' Design for Tiled Steps

      The artists, Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher, have revised a design for the Hidden Garden Steps. What follows is much easier to see. The design in tiles is on each riser, and each pencil line is a tread. For example, the dragonfly below covers five risers. The artists intend to place individual tiles ($1,000, $350, $150) in appropriate places throughout the steps, all fitting in with the over-all design. Scroll down to enjoy the whole design.

      The "Donate" link on green menu above provides more information on "Tiles" and "Elements". The third link "Step design" will show the official city map of the steps, and where elements will be placed.
