A visitor can blissfully float along the Third Level viewing abstract and representative images of water. The calm coastal waters of Connecticut are displayed in the Ambulatory Surgery Waiting Room and also in the 60-foot Pedestrian Bridge Corridor, another signature area in the facility. As visitors walk through the pedestrian bridge that links the center to a five-level garage, their attention is drawn to beautiful photographs of local reservoirs and dams, each installed with a descriptive panel that tells the story of each location’s purpose and interconnectivity. These images were a generous contribution to the art collection by Aquarion Water Company.
