Garden House I & II
Amy Cropper

Garden House I & II

Garden House I and Garden House II hang in the Library’s Carnegie Reading Room. The pieces are painted textiles with plant and geometric patterns that create new patterns which fluctuate between rigid and fluid. Acquired in 2009.

About the Artist

Amy Cropper has been an associate professor of art at Carroll University since 1995. Cropper teaches sculpture, drawing, and a senior capstone course. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa.

Cropper’s work ranges from drawings to sculpture to installation and, since the early 1990s, has been concerned with notions of nature and culture. Her work has been featured at numerous exhibitions. She is interested in creating art for public spaces because of the opportunity it offers to instill art into everyday activities. Art in public spaces, like a library, allows art viewing to simply "happen," as one goes about other activities. Cropper believes this “accidental viewing” gives both art and the imagination a place in daily life, which is critical for human development.
