Some of our initial concept development references and suggested graphic “landmarks” along the course of the river.


Kelley, Mike, Bob Harris and Mike Speech sculpt Chattahoochee River and graphic elements into existing natural gray, ground and polished concrete slab.


Kelley and Mike Speech apply both solvent-based and water-based acrylic resists, followed by colored dye washes over sculpted substrate.


Aesthetic joints are cut and grouted black. Sculpted, dyed river and graphics are in-filled with epoxy casting resin, with an aqueous texture. The market opens!


Chef from Prepared Foods Department can’t resist taking a dip in “The Mighty Chattahoochee”… Of course, who could resist it?
