George Morrison

GMA&D promotes the interaction of people and art through expressions of community values, history and joy through Public Art. My experience as an architect allows me to work easily with design teams and contractors. I use professional artisans for fabrication. They are selected for each project based upon the unique skills required to insure a highly professional finished product. I am a Sole Proprietor with professional, auto, product and completed operations liability insurance.
