The vision of Mural Mosaic is to “(Re)Connect the World” through the joy of art—one painted tile, one tree, one community, one country at a time. Through its Global Roots project, Mural Mosaic aims to reach out and create as many murals as possible around the world to reconnect individuals to their roots—the roots of their communities, homes, and families, as well as the roots of sharing, giving, and connecting. A mosaic of individual strengths and differences together becomes one united work of art.
Every Global Roots Mosaic Mural engages participants in the process of painting a tile representing their connection to community, country, colleague, team, family, and even the world. Each tile is painted to represent an important and iconic image that holds meaning to its participant. Individuals of every age and skill level are welcome to paint in these collaborative mosaic murals.
The Mural Mosaic team has orchestrated an interactive process to provide workshops online so that participants can paint from the comfort and safety of their own spaces. Mural Mosaic will collect the completed tiles digitally or by mail, and the artist and design teams will create each mosaic mural. As all the completed tiles are connected, a united image of a tree emerges, representing both the contributions of individual participants and the collective group artwork.
Tiles are now available for the America Connects Regional Mural Mosaics. Register to receive a Mural Mosaic tile kit. Painted tiles are due by August 31, 2022.
