“Windows to our Memories”
Mosaic Marathon: 2014 American Mosaic Summit, Houston, Texas
3 panels for Smither Park Memory Wall
©️2014 Recycled and repurposed materials, smalti, mixed media on handmade dimensional substrates
As part of the 2014 American Mosaic Summit sponsored by the Society of American Mosaic Artists, Dianne led hundreds of mosaic artists in the creation of three dimensional niches that were installed into the Memory Wall at Smither Park. The Austin Mosaic Guild created the dimensional substrates prior to the summit. During the 5 days of the conference, attendees created the mosaics. They were invited to bring small tokens and mixed media to include in the panels, signifying individual memories.
The panels were installed on the final day of the conference with a celebratory BBQ.
