2015 Community Arts Highlights
Mosaic Murals in Sandtown
Living Legacy Foundation Mosaic Mural in Triangle Park
Clayworks Community Arts lead artist and Director of Community Engagement, Herb Massie worked with families from Sandtown and those who have received or have had loved ones to donate tissues through the Living Legacy Foundation to create tiles for a large installation on the horizontal surface of the exterior fountain in Triangle Park, a city park in Sandtown across from Jubilee Arts, the partner and location of all programming and workshops.
PNC Transformative Art Prize BOPA Façade Mural with Jubilee Arts
Clayworks Community Arts lead artist, Dominique Hellgeth worked with other community artists and over 100 participants to create a 36’x3.5’ mural to be installed in the façade of the Harris-Marcus Center, home to Jubilee Arts and the Clayworks’ Clay for All! Studio in west Baltimore.
Art@Work Mosaic House Signs with Youthworks
Clayworks Community Arts lead artist and Director of Community Engagement, Herb Massie, worked with ten young people during the summer months to create two dozen mosaic house numbers for residents of Stricker Street, a city block in the west Baltimore neighborhood of Sandtown. Massie taught teenagers how to create with mosaics as a part of the Art@Work initiative with Youthworks, paying teens to be working artists out of our studios at Jubilee Arts.
