**Waterfall in the Woods is currently receiving some maintenance. In the meantime, you can check out a temporary piece by Pobatschnig titled Heart of the Cosmic on display at this location**
Kristen Pobatschnig’s three-part abstract mural is inspired by the Sabbaday Falls, Arethusa Falls and Champney Falls, all found in the White Mountain National Forest. “Waterfall in the Woods” is an installation of three abstract painted plexiglass panels, each measuring 8’x3’, to create a triptych mural. The piece is an abstract representation, utilizing bright, iridescent paint and powdered pigments. Each panel explores a different view and element of the falls on plexiglass, offering a glimpse for outlet shoppers into the beauty of the White Mountains surrounding the region. “My goal as the artist is to bring people closer to nature, and to encourage an appreciation for our natural environment,” explained Kristen.
