"Entangled Bank" mural installed at Irvine Valley College's Life Science Building

Piece by Piece completed a five-panel mural in March for IVC's new Life Sciences Building lobby. We used  repurposed ceramics and glass, as well as some handmade tiles to create this piece, inspired by nature. The school had a wonderful dedication ceremony for the building, and our artists were recognized for their fine work. You can read more about the making of this mural on our blog: piecebypiecela

"Giving Is Universal" Mural Complete for Universal Studios

Our commission artists have been busy! This wonderful mural, which highlights the many charities supported by Universal's Discover A Star Foundation, was completed and installed at the Employee and Business entrance of Universal Studios.

Thank you!
A big thank you to everyone who came out to support our artists at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in April. We had a great sale, and many of our artists demonstrated the art of mosaic. One of our 30-inch garden spheres was on display. The large sphere was made possible in large part thanks to a generous donation from the Barry and Sue Brucker and the Marion Brucker Legacy Trust. At-risk youth  created the butterflies on these spheres, and our own Piece by Piece artists applied the mosaic.  To see photos of the event, click here.
