hogan_me_andre_8x12 copyThis mosaic mural was completed June 6th, 2014, with enormous amounts of volunteer help from community residents, students at the middle school, and staff and their family members.  A profound thanks to all who contributed to the co-creation of this mosaic mural.  The students will be able to see their beautiful individual and epic group work for decades to come.

Volunteers helped complete the work to install the enormous and gorgeous mosaic mural pieced by students at Hogan Middle School, in Vallejo, CA.  This is a community-built piece that was designed with the school staff to provide hands-on art education and experience for the students in this school which has no visual arts program.  The mural is on an outside wall facing the street and will beautify and inspire for decades to come.

 

 

Mosaic mural location is Hogan Middle School auditorium entrance at 850 Rosewood Drive, Vallejo, Ca.  (510) 415-3916 call or text to let me know which shift you can make.

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.
