Description of Work

Over 2,000 students created individual mosaics on 6" tile squares. The tiles were then mounted on the wall. The over-arching abstract design was the result of a design contest for Santa Cruz City school students. The design was applied to the wall with a five color grout system. The lead artist and project manager was Kathleen Crocetti.

The plaque reads: "3,224 tiles, 600 pounds of glass and 539 onsite volunteer hours, and 11 participating City of Santa Cruz Schools."
