Michele Oka Doner is an internationally known artist whose work has been collected by some of the most prestigious museums in the world. Architecture often plays a large role in her work, as she has designed walls, meeting places and public floor spaces, such as Meijer Gardens’ own Beneath the Leafy Crown. Gnomon, a pair, represents small seedpods, which are enlarged, emphasizing the shape and texture.
