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.
This mosaic was created as a collaborative project with selected lead artists from core CMS staff and the fine arts department at NEIU. Studio art students were challenged to create a design that complemented the architectural features of the newly designed Pedroso Student Center. The composition features a broad abstract design that incorporates natural imagery such as landscape, foliage, and seed-like forms within an overlaid honeycomb pattern.
