Bondurant - Parks and Recreation Mural

MFA alum Drew Etienne designed and created a a mural depicting Iowa birds for Bondurant's future Parks and Recreation Facility. 

Located at the Bondurant Regional Trailhead, the Parks and Recreation facility is positioned in a prominent location. Drew Etienne's design encapsulates the beauty of Iowa's natural landscape across all four seasons. The artist statement conveys the inspiration for the design: 

The design takes advantage of the four separate sections of panels to highlight nature in Iowa through the autumn, winter, spring, and summer, and helps create a harmony between the built and natural environments. Birds native to Iowa are the focus, including the redstart, the blue jay - as a nod to the Bondurant Farrar blue jays, the ruby-throated hummingbird, and the Iowa state bird, the goldfinch. The seasonal motif and ties to Iowa’s natural environment will serve the space well now and in the future when the building houses the parks & recreation offices.
