Designed by Serena Feingold, this new work — a colorful abstract landscape — glitters and glows in the light as you enter the new studio. The mural works as a ‘learning landscape’ — embedded with the colors, types of tile, and andamento patterns that crew members need to lead mosaic workshops.

“This piece is meant to be a welcoming focal point of the new Arts on the Block studio. It is designed to be vibrant, vocal, and expressive – just like the AOB community!
Compositionally, the organic shapes flow between more graphic lines, moving like a landscape but staying in the abstract.
This mosaic is meant to bring people into our space and show them how creative, skilled, and colorful we are as a community and organization.”
