- 160 sq. ft. Broken Tile Mosaic- Exterior Installation


During two ten week mosaic workshops, Carolyn Elaine led a group of students in the design and fabrication of ten broken tile panels in a program facilitated by the North Town Arts Corp, a consortium of arts and education groups in the Cabrini-Green area. The Seward Park Mosaics which include such images as animals, insects, flowers, food, as well as, sports, science, neighborhood, and lake scenes – adorn two 40-foot-long brick and cement benches that create a strong, colorful line in front of the park’s field house.
