Michael Sweere Unveils Mayo Clinic Mural
Michael Sweere's recent commission for the Mayo Clinic is now installed and on permanent display in the T. Denny Sanford Pediatrics Center, located in the Mayo Building, Rochester, MN.
Created entirely from recycled paper packaging, the mosaic mural depicts the four major natural biomes (environments) of Minnesota and the plant and animal life that live within each. They are: Forest, Prairie, Lakes and Wetlands. Over 100 living creatures are depicted - including several hidden surprises. Measuring six feet in height by sixteen feet wide, the mural took almost one year to complete.
