Daleene's most recent work, entitled:

 

The Ride:

 

involved designing and creating a 50 ft. x 4 ft. mural, made from nearly 1500 porcelain, handmade

relief tiles, with colored, fired clay surfaces, for the Central (bus) Station in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Statement of The Assignment:

 

     “Create a work of art, using a bus transportation theme that enhances the

 architecture of the building and welcomes patrons using overland and The Rapid buses.”

 

  The artist chose to show scenes that can be seen while riding The Rapid buses to

illustrate the beauty of Grand Rapids, suggesting the bus routes with the blue street

          line and representing the Grand River symbolically in the border.
