Flourish by Gilf! , 2015 at 181 W. King St.

Gilf! also known as Ann Lewis, is a conceptual activist artist. Her work provokes mindfulness and creates a space for progressive change within communities.

Flourish is one in a series of Gilf’s hidden word mazes. Her choice of the word “flourish” functions in both a physical and intellectual sense. To flourish is to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment. The library and it’s garden represent both physical and intellectual growth. Flourish is a subtle and skillful statement encouraging forward movement while also providing a moment for reflection.
