We have welcomed over 200 community members to mosaic workshops in the last month, and they have given us over 600 hours and some pretty incredible artwork!
In this hands-on community art project, 10 multi-paneled “quilted” mosaics, which are interpretations of traditional textile patterns from cultural communities, are being created. The images are representational of various textile patterns from the cultural communities in our neighborhood and using the park. We have one more workshop before the holidays, then will take a break until mid-January. Join us if you can!
Upcoming Community Mosaic Workshops is Tues. Dec. 11, 6:30 PM, MLK Park
All ages welcome; those under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult. RSVP’s appreciated!
The goal of the Mosaic Quilting Project is to demonstrate, through visual art, the diversity of cultures in our community and celebrate their shared public space at Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park. To learn more about this project visit here.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and by a grant from the City of Minneapolis Graffiti Prevention program.
