Women’s Support & Community Services Donor Wall
A non-profit organization dedicated to aiding abused women commissioned this donor wall commemorating contributors to their capital campaign fund. In a building with no significant architectural features, an exterior donor wall adds interest and attracts attention to the qualities that the organization upholds. To make the quilt a unique, memorable, and permanent element, fine metals were specified. Brushed stainless steel is the grid or “stitching” and bronze (with eight different patinas) and various stainless steel mesh patterns are the “patchwork fabric” of the quilt. The donor names are engraved into the bronze patchwork pieces and patina colors differentiate the eight donation levels. The finished quilt, measuring six feet square, is suspended at the main entry of the building in front of a large window. At night, the donor wall has a transparent effect when light from the window can be seen through the stainless mesh.
