LIFETILE Testimonials

Working with Rufus is a great collaborative process. He's able to translate an emotional or intellectual idea into moving works of art. He is able to take a basic design concept and improve upon it in the final installation.

  I would highly recommend Rufus Seder and his LIFETILES art to anyone wanting an innovative strategy, a fun and collaborative process, and a breath of fresh air.

We've incorporated LIFETILES murals as one of the signature pieces of our new Outpatient Center. We couldn't be happier with the entire process, and with the ultimate outcome. Our patients and staff love them.

One of the most eye-catching features at TSCK Aquarium is our pair of LIFETILES murals. We are constantly receiving comments praising their creativity and genius. Rufus managed to depict aspects of our wildlife in an innovative way such that the murals do not go unnoticed.

Our LIFETILES murals are magical--and full of surprises!

The LIFETILES mural is a tremendous success and has added an exciting and unique dimension to our repertoire of exhibitry. Rufus has truly captured the essence of human and marine mammal interaction.

Our outdoor LIFETILES murals are technologically fascinating and yet elegantly simple in their animated story telling. The mural series is an engaging, accessible, educational, and unique form of public art.

It's such a joy to watch Science Center visitors encounter the LIFETILE murals for the first time. They frequently stride right by them, only to back up and do a double-take as they realize the images are 'moving'. I've encountered Rufus' work at several places since that installation, and it's always fun to think to myself, 'I knew him way back when.'

LIFETILES are the perfect addition to our exhibitry at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center. As a manager, I appreciate the unique visual appeal, the durability and low-maintenance of this wonderfully interactive exhibit. Rufus is fun to work with, very responsive to our needs, and is committed to creating and delivering a high-quality, biologically accurate display.

Working with Rufus was one of the most rewarding aspects of designing the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. His exquisite LIFETILES panels in the museum's rotunda are one of the most talked about and spectacular elements of the museum!
