The first mosaics date back to around 3000 BC, and it’s no surprise that this art form is still widely practiced today. Through mosaics, artists can create detailed, beautiful, and meaningful images one shiny stone or tile at a time. This month, we take inspiration from Anya Gallaccio’s interactive sculpture, to see if time was there. This beautiful replica of a tree in Wales holds a surprise when you climb to the top and discover the beautiful mosaic on its surface, all made from stones found right here in Texas. You’ll get the chance to make your own mini mosaic when you join us on Saturday, April 8 at Laguna Gloria.
