Mosaic the City is a
spirit, an initiative and an organization that
fosters the creation of neighbourhood "community
unity" mosaic art projects. Each project brings
people together to learn about each other while
sharing in the creation of unique mosaic art
pieces. Each project is community inspired,
community designed and community built by the
people who live, work, learn or shop in a
Mosaic the City is an initiative that grew from
the inspiration of the mosaicist Shylene Schlackl.
During the spring and summer of 2003, Shylene was
joined by a group of community organisers and
citizens to create the Mosaic the City
organization based in Victoria, British Columbia.
Since then two projects have been completed:
Mosaic the Market 2003 and Central Middle School's
Community Unity Project 2004.
The to date uncompleted mosaic in this exhibit is
a combination of efforts made by all the leaders
of past MtC projects. Each of the first five
projects will add their creative flair to this
piece and it will then become the official MtC
Mosaic for the Victoria chapter of the initiative.
