During the 2002 Winter Games, Sola was in Salt Lake City, creating a tapestry of “the mountains to match the Games.” The 7-foot-high, 10-foot-wide piece captures the Wasatch Front from about 15,000 feet in the air. She worked for months in the basement of the Crossroads Plaza, putting together mountains, practically one snowflake at a time.

“I love these mountains,” she said back then. “You see how they were originally folded up, how the glaciers carved them and the rivers wind their way through them; how people came along and built their roads and cities. You see how awesome they are.”
