Shrub-Steppe Heritage; Ephrata, WA
Painting with fellow artist Jason Quinn, this was Gibbens' initiation into larger scale public work. Completed in the summer of 1996, it is based on a poster design of Amy Fisher’s commissioned for the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. It depicts native flora and fauna of the shrub-steppe ecosystem of central Washington.
