Columbus Mosaic at Clinton Elementary

Friday we went to Charlie’s school for Art Night and saw the students’ artwork displayed.

Charlie and Laura read the explanation

As we toured every floor, we saw this ceramic tile mosaic mural in the cafeteria. It was striking.

The ceramic tile artist Marlo Bartels Mosaic Saved article describes the journey the mural has taken. Here’s a short video telling how this colorful mural has been moved THREE times. You can not only hear the artist interviewed, but see Marlo Bartels do repair work on his mosaic mural at Clinton Elementary.
