Adia Millett Artist Statement

You are the Light of the World


Adia Millett

Stained glass windows

This site-specific installation of colorful glass windows honors the light and all the colors reflected through it. With mosaic-like patterns across the glass, the shapes and colors suggest diversity, joy and an endless depth of who we are and the land we live upon. A series of bold and colorful polygon shapes come together to reveal the sun’s rays surrounding Bishop O’Dowd Highschool. Designed to encourage playfulness and movement, this piece creates a colorful environment as the sun’s rays cast light on the stairwell within.

To view this public artwork in person, please contact the school secretary at 510-577-9100 to schedule a visit.

Artwork commissioned in accordance with Oakland Municipal Code 15.78: Public Art for Private Development.
