Beauty in Everything
Benita Marquez: The beautiful mosaic tiled steps of 16th Avenue & Moraga Street. Artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher created the mosaic design, a colorful, flowing, sea-to-sky theme, with fish near the foot of the steps and birds, leaves and stars near the top. The mosaic consists of 163 separate mosaic panels, one for each step riser. Community members were able to participate directly in creating the panels via a series of workshops that the artists held during summer 2004.
