When creating WoW, artist Courtney Kolker’s goal was to capture the array of colors and textures found throughout Wren. Kolker wanted to offer an invitation to the eye from any vantage point – one that makes viewing the piece from a different table or seat, unique to the viewer and the angle.

Just as Wren was created as a space for guests to comfortably gather and connect while sharing good food, drink, and companionship, Kolker’s goal in creating this piece was to offer an opportunity for people to come together through the experience of viewing and interpreting abstract art - sharing what they see and discovering what they originally may have not.

The intention is for guests to enjoy their unique process of finding his or her own interpretation of WoW, and that it serves to enhance the overall vibrant, whimsical experience that is, Wren.
