Krasl Art Center’s East Garden was dedicated in 2018 as an intimate outdoor space that inspires a sense of play, wonder, and reflection through interactive contemporary art installations. New projects are installed often, transforming and invigorating the space anew with fresh artistic vision.


Our work uses the repetition of colorful, three-dimensional lines and shapes to activate and reimagine community spaces. In the East Garden Installation, our winding sculpture connects the garden spaces in order to highlight the art pieces on display. We invite people to move through this, and all of our pieces, with the hope that they will feel connected to and inspired by their surroundings.

We believe in the value of accessible art. We met as theatrical scenic designers with a shared passion for unconventional performance spaces (abandoned buildings, converted warehouses, and parking garages to name a few). Our aesthetic, including the inexpensive and readily available materials that we use, developed out of a combination of necessity and curiosity. Initially self-funded, we used what we had on hand. It has evolved into our shared artistic vocabulary: graphic elements, repeated shapes, bright colors, and winding lines that create sculptures that emphasize the joy and energy of community spaces.
