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.
