Anna Valentina Murch and Doug Hollis
Standing beside the cascading waters of the Fresno Federal Courthouse fountain, it is hard to imagine a more fitting focal point for the surrounding scenery.
In 2003, artists Anna Valentina Murch and Doug Hollis were called upon to enhance the atmosphere of the Fresno Courthouse by creating a landscape design that would compliment the building’s architecture and draw upon its natural surroundings. To do so, the duo chose Academy Black® facing and boulders to create a fountain of strength and beauty.
The goal was to achieve an integrated design where people were not sure where the architecture stopped and the landscape design started.
