San Bruno Community Art Project
To Build a Mosaic Wall in Memory of the Disaster of September 9, 2010
All San Bruno residents, past and present, are invited to participate in the creation of a memorial mosaic wall, honoring the victims of the explosion and fire on September 9, 2010. This free community art project is sponsored by, and located at Bethany Presbyterian Church, 2400 Rosewood Drive.
Mosaic artist Leslie Scott will be leading the workshops as we create our wall. Leslie is a gifted artist, skilled craftswoman, and regularly leads community-installed mosaic art projects. You may view her work at on-the-wall.net.
Our wall will depict healing from chaos and pain, with prominent images of a phoenix rising from ashes, healing waters, a hope-laden rainbow, and a mighty tree protecting 38 houses (representing the homes destroyed in the fire) along poppy-strewn, rolling hills of San Bruno.
In our first workshops, we will be creating ceramic pieces (from wet, unfired clay) which will be incorporated into the mosaic.
Our second workshops will be the creation of the wall itself, placing broken ceramic tile and other ceramic pieces into the design and grouting the wall.
