Located at a busy intersection where Quarrier and Summers Street meet, Horizons provides a strong splash of color to the urban area. The work is paint on stucco and was created in 2017 by Jeff Pierson. Dynamic visible brushwork and an almost fauvist color palette define the flow of the piece. The irregular shape of the painted architectural feature provides a unique two-story canvas for the image, which depicts rolling mountains lit by either a sunrise or sunset. Vibrant colors are carefully modulated, with strong cooler colors anchoring the tapered base while bright warm colors jut above the cornice of the building.
