Network was the third Percent for Art project completed in Columbia, but represents two important firsts: It was the first commission awarded to a local artist and the first created by a woman. Glasgow’s series of colored and sandblasted glass blocks is incorporated into three areas of the building, all visible from the exterior. The blocks include traditional symbols of firefighting as well as swirls of smoke.
