The Sanford Center is home to numerous art displays which range from custom, hand-crafted signs, glasswork, gorgeous tiling, and much more from both local and national artists.
The Sanford Center is the home to one of the largest displays of art in the state of Minnesota. The building's unique display is built to stand out with its custom tile artwork that expands the length of the building and wraps around the arena.
Designed by Barbara Keith and installed by Advanced Terrazzo and Tile of Coon Rapids, Minn., the terrazzo floor covers the concourse of the event center/arena and convention center inside the Sanford Center.
Keith, of Fine Art Glassworks in Lanesboro, Minn., designed the 15,000-square-foot panorama depicting the Northwoods of Northern Minnesota. Included are images of leaves, trees, birds, fish, and animals.
The National Terrazzo & Mosaic Association honored the floor as an honorable mention in the awards it issued for 2010 projects.
