The Great Out-Doors


Merrell has partnered with artist Jenny Siegfried for an art installation currently on view outside Trail Conference Headquarters in Mahwah, N.J. The installation invites visitors to walk through a doorway entering the beautiful natural surroundings of the great outdoors in two enticing ways. The front of the door depicts a sweeping view of majestic Mt. Tammany, located in the Delaware Water Gap.

A delightful yellow trail winds through the landscape, highlighting native trees and flowers along the way. The reverse of the door engages visitors to start their own outdoor journey with a scavenger hunt of summer blooming native flowers that could all be spotted just around the next switchback or trail turn. How many can you find? Be sure to post and tag us in your finds using #greateroutdoors, @jennysiegfriedillustrations, @merrell, and @nynjtc
