|Amy Reisland-Speer : "Incoming Summer Storm"|
All this as opposed to the massive, contrasting effort seen in the main visitor's center for the National Park*. Though not the work of any individual artist, this 9k square-foot diorama created by Split Rock Studios shows a more clinically illustrative and educational approach. A detailed and complex project on this scale typically calls for the logistical services of a large company. Though as a side-note, there exists solo Alaskan artists of comparable caliber who create epic pieces on this same scale: this mural reminded me of the superlative work of Heidi Hahn.
* Special mention must also be made of the Artist-in-Residence program at Denali National Park.
