Overview of the entire ceramic piece. Its center shows the town of Corvallis as a skyline with clouds overhead. That center is surrounded by individual scenes of importance to the town.

A close up of the central part of the ceramic art. This shows a tree growing next to the skyline of Downtown Corvallis, Oregon. Also fluffy clouds overhead, probably threatening rain.
