NEXUS BLUE MOSAIC
COMMERCIAL PUBLIC ART COMMISSION ALBUQUERQUE, NM 2018-19
This series of four mosaic murals were created in collaboration with interior designer Patti Hoech for Nexus Blue Brewery and Smokehouse. The design is inspired by fiber patchwork and quilts and utilizes 350 sq ft of up-cycled tile. Tiles were gathered from discontinued commercial lines and from the private collections of mosaic artists. Young artists were hired to learn professional mosaic installation and build their own portfolios.
