Lifespan – Abilities Illuminated

MOSAIC Wish List

Continuing our vision of illuminating the abilities and talents of our resident artists, the Mosaic: A LIFESPAN Studio moved to the Greensboro Creative Campus. The brick house next door will be the future home to MOSAIC: A LIFESPAN Studio. This will be an AMAZING location for the studio giving plenty of space to grow the arts. Imagine the front entrance filled with bold garden sculptures created by the artists, bright and colorful planters filled with lush flowers planted by the individuals in the horticulture classes and eclectic cheerful found object signage leading you to the main entrance. On the back lawn artists, ambassadors  and community volunteers are setting up an art show for an afternoon art sale. Visitors enjoying leisurely shopping and then touring the studio where the all the magic happen.

This is our vision of a welcoming and inclusive community. Below are items we anticipate needing to make this vision a reality. To be a part of our community we hope you join us and contribute to our wish list. Thank you for your generosity!
