Description

These etched glass windows depict, in abbreviated graphic form, various sports represented in the Hall of Fames museum displays. While subtle, the graceful and elegant portrayals emphasize the universality of sport and inspire the viewer by capturing the essence of the activities.

Sharon Roadcap-Quinlivan began her career as a graphic artist designing logos and other marketing materials, including murals. One of her projects involved glass as a medium. The artist decided to focus on glass works and went on to complete a five-year apprenticeship with a local art glass company. She has since created large-scale glass projects including topographical maps of California and Saudi Arabia. Her work can be found in numerous corporate collections including the Walt Disney Company.
