Mariah Wick, the BMA’s Education Department Office Manager, chose a colorful piece from the collection for her #ArtEscape!

“The piece I am choosing is Gravity’s Rainbow by Odili Donald Odita. I have always been drawn to bright colors, which is why I love this piece. My second love is nature, and the way this piece touches on both is why it is one of my favorites in the collection. I love getting lost in this beautiful rainbow mountain range!”
