In addition to teaching individual artists how to cultivate expertise in the mosaic medium, CMS is also committed to sharing our art form with our community and world. Over the years we have been privileged to partner with many schools, businesses, organizations, and city districts to create lasting public artwork that can be enjoyed by all. The projects listed below are only some of the installations that CMS has created over the past ten years. The most recent projects are displayed at the top.
Working with the East Lakeview Chamber of Commerce from 2009 to 2010, CMS staff designed this mosaic for installation on the corner of W. Oakdale Avenue and N. Broadway Street with the aim of enlivening and beautifying the public space. They prepped materials and then set up a booth at the Lakeview East Festival of the Arts, inviting local members of the community to help complete the design throughout the festival. The mosaic was completed and installed by CMS staff and volunteers, and dedicated in ceremony in 2010.
