Piece by Piece in Public Spaces

Our creative crew turned out for a second Bring Back Broadway Street Event and inspired broad audience participation to successfully complete a colorful Mosaic "Pizza" Art in the span of two hours. Thanks to Instructor Betty Rosen Ziff and to our amazing volunteers for hosting a fun Night on Broadway!



Piece by Piece artisans worked with instructor Luz Mack Durini to create this stunning mural of the Los Angeles skyline in an advanced techniques workshop using a mix of materials including vibrant dichroic glass. The team focused on cutting techniques, collaborating on the finer points of a design.  The mural was displayed at the Star Apartments for a very short time before it was purchased and installed at the Central City Association Lobby.

Meet our Participant Artists

Piece by Piece artists come from varied backgrounds. Many have no experience with art at all, but find their creative voice through our workshops and certificate program, as well as the strong sense of community that has developed throughout the years. We celebrate their artwork and successes through our blog, which features individual artists on a regular basis.

I like all of the workshops that are taught by every teacher. They bring teachers with different techniques and what I really love is when the public, lovers of Mosaic, purchase our creative pieces.
