Baile Oakes is on a mission to "use our visual language to help bring our culture to a fuller understanding of our place within the living systems of the Earth." He favors hands on activities in the public play spaces he creates, in hopes to offer a place of shelter to the visitor; a restful sanctuary.
Fun Fact: Many of Oakes' artworks highlight natural phenomena such as the solar calendar, desert landscapes, and the importance of water.
