Community Mosaic Project

In 2021, the festival hosted the first ever Community Mosaic Project! Reclaimed wooden 4×4 square tiles were available to the community as mini canvases to create art upon. Each tile was added to larger boards during the festival, creating a multi-dimensional community mosaic! Click here for more information.
