Saturday, February 20th 1pm-3pm
Thursday, March 4th 7pm-9pm

More info:

519 Mosaic is a new community-engaged, hands-on, large-scale mosaic project beginning in January 2010. The project is aimed at participants of all ages, and abilities drawn from the diverse community members and program participants that call the 519 Community Centre home.

519 Mosaic is led by artists Anna Camilleri and Tristan R. Whiston of Red Dress Productions (RDP), with Apprentices Heidi Cho, Rafaela Dominici Vidinha, and Tamara Perez Mucino.

No prior experience with art or mosaic is required to participate! Your ideas are wanted.

This project locates itself within a community engaged public art tradition-not just viewed by community/the public, but also created by community members with the intent of exhibiting the artwork in the public domain. There are many examples of public art in Toronto, however the great majority of those public artworks are private commissions. 519 Mosaic will be a public artwork created by community members in a collaborative community art process where participants are directly engaged at all stages of creation.
