H+B was honored to participate in paying homage to the oldest bowling alley west of the Mississippi, Saratoga Lanes, by decorating a beautifully artistic bowling pin! Designers within the Maplewood special business district were each provided with a 5' white fiberglass bowling pin to decorate as part of the annual "Let Them Eat Art" festival. The theme for this year's festival was "Heads Will Bowl" and the H+B firm created a true Architect's pin using upcycled material samples. After being displayed in storefront windows, the decorated bowling pins will be auctioned off at the Saratoga Lanes' 100th Birthday party.
