Exhibit: Cascade Creek: Yosemite Spring Mural

Cascade Creek by William Poulson

Spring 2020 - present

KL380 North

William Poulson inspired by the extraordinary beauty of the Yosemite Valley, the words of John Muir, and the paintings of artist Albert Bierstadt presents this view of Cascade Creek. This mural represents a stunning location on the approach to Yosemite National Park from Groveland. As you're entering the park the creek is visible about a half mile after the first tunnel that visitors pass through. This beautiful display, comprised of stained glass, is complete with striking white dogwood flowers.

William Poulson was born in Oakland, CA and grew up in Castro Valley. He left college in 1962 to become a journeyman carpenter and worked in the building trade for over 20 years. In 1987, Poulson established his studio and gallery in Arnold, CA. His unique glass creations are on display in homes, churches and hotels throughout the world. Poulson's desire to capture the beauty of the Yosemite Valley inspired him to conceive the Four Seasons of Yosemite Mural Project. He is presently working on the spring mural.
