East Branch Library Mosaic


East Branch Library Mosaic​ 

A partnership between lead artist Laura Smith, East Somerville Main Streets, Mudflat Pottery Studios and the Somerville Arts Council, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.  

  • East Somerville Main Streets and Mudflat Studios held six workshops at the East Somerville Community School with grades 2 and 7 to conceptualize and mold the actual clay pieces for the mosaic. This created over 100 unique pieces that represent the children's history and perspective.  

  • There were also six workshops at Beautiful Stuff Project, one workshop at the Broadway Senior Center, one workshop in the East Somerville library and two workshops at MudFlat Studios, to produce clay pieces for the mosaic that would include the perspective of people in the community from as many backgrounds as possible.
