Suspended from the center's ceiling are 25 hollow cast abstract forms which evoke the idea of a school of fish. Entitled Fleet, the artwork refers to the strong presence of water at the center as well as the salmon conservation efforts focused around Thornton Creek. Artist Mark Calderon states, "I have constructed a series of suspended forms that create a sense of movement that helps to draw you into the center. I hope it serves as a warm invitation."
