Glass ceramic mosaic
2002, Chicago Public Art Group
This mosaic is largely made up of tiles created by adults and children during weekend workshops at the Field Museum in the summer of 1999. Participants were asked to carve images related to the themes of Project Millennium- Origins, Transitions, New Directions, Discovery and Technology. The artists then glazed, fired and assembled the “people tiles” into readable designs that formed a scenic collage of contemplative images from nature including clouds, plants, trees, forests, oceans, animals, birds, sunsets, earth and space.
