Neighborhood Time Exchange’s Artist-in-Residence, Ellen Tiberino had a vision to gather youth and seniors from “the neighborhood” to create a mosaic that was a reflection of the changes they would like to see in their communities.
Over 12 weeks Ellen took an intimate group step-by-step through the creation of the mosaic. First beginning with visioning: sketching and using watercolor to create the pattern for ceramic tiles. Then painting the tiles, and finally learning to use mini glass tiles and stained glass to create a beautiful, large mosaic.
You are invited to the unveiling of this mosaic to see the beauty of this collaboration before it is hung in its permanent home. (The students had lots of fun in the workshop, so you’re in store for a good time!)
