Mosaic Project For the Library

Mosaic Project For the Library

Visitors can now enjoy our new Mountain/Sky Mosaic installed next to the Library’s front door. Sabra Moore designed the mosaic and taught three free workshops during the month of August with children from the summer reading program and many adults from the village to create tiles and paint them with images relating to Abiquiu Pueblo. Participants painted the church, pottery shards, pine cones, mountian lions, fishing, roadrunners, rainbows, cactus, Pedernal, priests, crosses, an horno, hummingbirds, canyons and many other designs and pictures. In addition to painting a fine tile, Iren Schio lettered the name of the Library across the top borders circling the mosaic. Thanks to Abiquiu Children’s Art Fund for their grant to purchase some of the materials, to Sabra Moore for providing additional materials and for donating her skills as artist/instructor for this project and to all the participants whose tiles we can now enjoy for generations to come.
