Public Art

All ten schools in the Ithaca City School District participated in making this ceramic tile mosaic mural. The Ithaca Fine Arts Booster Group and the Ithaca Public Education Initiative generously sponsored the project and the City of Ithaca supported it as well. The mosaic is an image of the Ithaca area watershed with the smooth dark pebbles representing Cayuga Lake inlet and the tributary creeks that flow into it. Students made the tiles that represent the land masses from slabs of clay carefully cut out to create a map.

  1. I was thrilled to meet you yesterday afternoon at the Discovery Center! I am excited about the possibility of working with you next year, and will be in touch to discuss a project that I have in mind for my pre-school group. Karen
