The artist team of William Bennie and Kim Cridler has designed a suspended wreath like sculpture for the Monroe entrance. The Halo employs a conical ring of interwoven agave leaves and is framed and supported by a grid-like structure. Its simplicity and scale transforms local flora into an iconic marker and focal point for the main Ballroom entrance at Monroe. Wreaths are full of symbolism and have long been associated with entrances. The form references the wreath as both corona convivialis-denoting a happy fate and good luck; and the divergent corona funebris, which, like the Phoenix of lore, signifies transformation through regeneration. On a formal level Halo shares the simple yet rich connotation of the ring, as continuity, life, and cyclic time.
