Between 2006-2011 I directed the creation of six large-scale
collaborative community art projects in Central Florida, including four mosaics. The first was the Hannibal Square Community Mosaic, facing a public park, mouted on a wall of the Winter Park Community Center. It tells a story of a turning point in voting rights and community action from the
early history of Hannibal Square, Winter Park’s African-American neighborhood. Students brainstormed and found words that were
emblematic of the neighborhood’s values. They created drawings that were the basis of the design. Children and over 500 volunteers from the local community created hand-made ceramic tiles, broke and cut recycled tile and mirror, and adhered the pieces to backer boards, grouted the tile using colored grouts, and hung the mosaic in place (twice, since the mosaic was removed and re-hung when the community center was razed and re-built). This mosaic is regularly used as part of the Winter Park Heritage Centers cultural tour to visualize stories from the community's past.
I created two mosaics working with schools. An ecology mosaic built by middle and high school students features animals and plants living on the school's campus. Another, at a newly-built elementary school, welcomed wildlife to the suburban campus environment. Every student at the school was able to have a hand in the creation of the mosaic.
The Crealdé Welcome Garden mosaic, celebrating community arts, was built by artists and community volunteers on the campus of an established community art center in Winter Park, FL.
Other projects I facilitated included "Taking Flight," a collaboration with artists Lynn and John Whipple and high school ceramics students, and a "Memory Wall," built at the Crealdé Heritage Center with renowned folk artist Mr. Imagination.
