Connecticut Wall of Nature

Designed and created by artist Marion Grebow, this wall in our entry area is composed of three-dimensional sculptured tiles that show scenes of nature found in Connecticut. All of the mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects, and plants are native to or are found in the state. The large border tiles focus on birds and mammals. The three scenic murals represent nature-related activities that can be enjoyed through Earthplace.  The smaller tiles show local insects, amphibians and reptiles, as well as display quotations inspired by nature.
