Learn more about Meadow Brook’s iconic Pegasus Fountain below!
Meadow Brook’s iconic Pegasus Fountain is one of the most distinct elements of the estate. It is an octagonal-shaped pool filled with turquoise-colored Pewabic tile and star-shaped inset tiles designed by Italian-born Detroit artist Corrado Parducci (who created the intricate carved plaster ceiling in Meadow Brook’s Christopher Wren Dining Room).
Originally surrounded by five beds of evergreens, the Pegasus Fountain is today a favorite setting for weddings and special celebrations.
The striking Colt Pegasus bronze sculpture was created in 1949 by Avard Fairbanks, an artist tied to the Dodge legacy. Fairbanks was commissioned by Walter P. Chrysler to design the ram logo that is still used today for the Dodge brand of automobiles.
