Mosaic Community Projects

Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum’s MOSAIC Program is a free after-school program for high school youth with a focus on mosaic tile art. MOSAIC is currently working on the production of a large scale, ceramic tile mural titled, “Virgen De San Juan” to be permanently installed at the San Juan Square Apartment Homes on 1938 Zarzamora St. in the city’s Westside. The “Virgen De San Juan” mosaic will depict the iconic image of Our Lady of San Juan, which was inspired by a mural that once adorned a wall at the San Juan Housing Projects on Zarzamora Street

ARTsmart MOSAIC Students are available for public art projects, murals and commissions.  100% of project fees go back into the ARTsmart MOSAIC program allowing free after-school art education programming.  For more information contact rubio@bluestarart.org

PAST AND CURRENT PROJECTS

San Juan Square Apartments

Muralist and Mosaic Studio Manager for Blue Star Education Department, Alex Rubio, will lead a crew of youth participants and high school students in traditional mural techniques utilizing hand made ceramic tile. The Mosaic Program, conducted at the Blue Star’s Education Facility, has recruited students from the San Juan Apartments as well as high school students from the area. Students are scheduled to participate in all aspects of visual art techniques including drawing, painting, mural composition and design. Mosaic Program youth receive hands-on training in the installation and production ceramic mosaic tile.  Once installed, the community is invited to celebrate the unveiling of a neighborhood icon, which will inspire many generations of community artists to come.
