New Mosaic Reflects the Poudre River

City of Fort Collins Art in Public Places program works with local artists to design the project.

As part of the City of Fort Collins Art in Public Places program, local artist Jill MacKay has created a mirror and natural river rock mosaic on the northeast side of the Mulberry Bridge along the Poudre River Trail. The river itself is the inspiration for this project.

With the use of flowing reflective mirror mosaic waveforms, the design mimics the reflective surface qualities of water. Using a mirrored surface makes the bridge’s cement walls virtually disappear and creates a living surface as it reflects the changing light of day. The natural river rock lends strong contrast and further mimics the look and feel of the river.
