Donor Wall – Academy of Notre Dame de Namur

Ceramic tile, glass and aluminum donor wall designed to capture the “mental map” of the campus as one enters the gates and follows the drive into the school. Top donor names are sandblasted into the “stone pillars.” The metal framing of the text panels mimics actual wrought iron work in the original school building known as “The Mansion.”

Location: Villanova, PA

Fine-tuned to our institution and its capital campaign, her design encouraged new leadership level donors.  A new parent looked at the mural and said, “I want my name on a stone!” Karen allowed for growth, so there were blank stones to accommodate this donor’s wish.
