Yesterday, I said I was crazy busy and made a short blog post... so why am I here today with another? I had to get a newsletter out to tell everyone about the reveal of this mosaic... and I usually link to my blog for a few more photos. So here we go.
Harrisburg Artsfest had me set up in a mega tent with Capital Area Intermediate Unit to make tiles with festival attendees. I had no idea what to expect but it was wonderful. There were over a thousand people of every age making tiles. The result of this great community effort will be gifted to the Harrisburg High School.By my count, we ended up with 1130 tiles and then the kids in the CAIU camp made almost 100 more tiles. The goal was to have kids assemble the mosaic in camp but we did not get enough kids to get it finished. That's why I am scrambling to get done by the reveal date. There is an open house Aug 26th and at 1PM will be the reveal. I'd love to see you there.
