Quercus | WOWHAUS



Public Art

Quercus will be a a landmark  32’7″ h x 27’4″ w  mosaic mural integrated into a new building development in the heart of Oakland.  Rendered in glass and iridescent glass, the artwork offers fresh perspective on a familiar icon of Oakland – the oak tree. The painterly, abstract composition takes inspiration from photographs of an acorn bract (the cap that connects the acorn to the tree) that were taken under a microscope. The shimmering spectrum of colors in the mosaic artwork evokes the cultural diversity of Oakland and offers unique insight into the beauty of the Oakland native ecosystem, revealing the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary.
