One of my favorite places at Como Park is the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, and one of my favorite rooms in the conservatory is the palm room.  The central, tallest room has a 64′ tall dome that’s visible throughout the park.  Within the room are palms of all types, some nearly 100 years old.  Below the peak of the dome is a bronze sculpture titled “Crest of the Wave,”  created by Harriet Frishmuth in 1925.  Its grace and upward motion leads your eyes up to the very top of the dome, celebrating the spaciousness and the beauty of the glass surrounding the room.  Whether daytime or nighttime, the view is wonderful!
