In Search of…FOWL

“Fowl,” by artists Alexa Hatanaka and Patrick Thompson (formerly PA System), submerges the viewer underwater, providing a new perspective on the nearby lakeshore. Walking along with the mural, we come face-to-face with sea creatures that each play an important part in our ecosystem. “Fowl” shows us a beautiful world that often goes unseen, and serves as a reminder of the interdependent nature of our environment that we need to respect and care for.
