‘Knowledge Is Power’ School Mosaic Mural

Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is Power

In April of 2013 I worked with staff and students of Vallejo’s Hogan Middle School during two weeks of Spring Break to put co-create this beautiful and inspiring mosaic mural.

Title:   Hogan School Community Mosaic  Mural

Dimensions: 6 foot x 17 foot

Media: Public mosaic mural using glass, ceramic tile, mirror, stone.  A  group mosaic created by dozens of participants, youth and adults, working in short sessions over a period of  a month.

Content:  The mosaic spells out the school’s motto, Knowledge Is Power, which was chosen as the theme for the mural by the school staff involved in the project.  A large portion of the tesserae (mosaic pieces) used for this piece came from donations from the community.  The design element of shooting stars is to invite students to shine.

This piece is quite magical, super glittery, it is titled ‘ Invocation’.  It’s a prayer in solid form.
