Mashed mosaic

On the south side of Glenn, just west of Swan, is a two-part mosaic/tile wall that fronts the parking lot for North Swan Baptist Church and Carden Christian Academy:

The V del M above is for the Vista del Monte neighborhood association, who funded the work finished in 2000 by artist Robin Riley,

Robin wrote that “At some point, one of the mosaic walls was hit by a car ... So now, the mosaic is incomplete because the mosaic was never replaced on the damaged wall.” And she sent this tip: “My favorite thing about this mosaic is that at night when you drive by, it just sparkles.”

I took the photos on a cloudy March 28, 2013. (Sometime I'd like to roll by at night and take a video to post here...)

To see other work of Robin's, type her name into the search box or search link at the right-hand side of this page.
