Wind in the Willows
Artist: David Ruth (2008)
Wind in the Willows, created by Oakland artist David Ruth, is a group of 54 handcrafted and unique art glass windows that vary in size from 6" to 27" square and are installed in an asymmetrical pattern across the west wall of the library. Ruth's windows are intended to capture the feeling of light as it filters through tree branches, particularly through willow tree branches.
The windows are a striking feature viewed from either the interior or exterior. During the afternoon they create colorful patterns reminiscent of light through leaves on the inside of the library; while in the evening, light from the library emanates outward through the windows.
