Progress: We. Are. Almost. Done.
Our 50th Anniversary exterior mosaic which consists of five, 3'x4' ceramic panels depicting events since 1962 has been a labor of love. Every single tile was handcrafted by my talented students in all grades including preschool and kindergarten.
The artsy staff at Bear Tavern have poured support into the project in so many way. Not only did they make their own fabulous tiles but have been there to offer advice, extra time filling in holes and general positive spirits.
Our Artist-in-Residence, Jessica Liddell, is pulling together all of the pieces. I am coordinating installation as you read this entry. She will return to grout when spring arrives.
Check back for updates on the final install and finished panels or stop by the main entrance to Bear Tavern sometime soon!
Update: April 16, 2013
There she is...Jessica Gorlin-Liddell our Artist-in-Residence installing tiles to fill in the spaces.
Here are the panels that the awesome HVRSD Facilities guys installed last week.
