Mosaic Benches and Pilars
 | Spring 2009
Geronimo Plaza: University Blvd. & Euclid Ave., Tucson, AZ
During the Spring of 2009, the students of The Tucson Unified School District’s Community Transition Programs (CTP), in collaboration with Ben’s Bells and the local community, produced four mosaic benches and eleven panels covered in hundreds of personalized tiles honoring individuals who have inspired kindness. These benches and panels were not only installed in Main Gate Square, they were produced on site with the active support of the Marshall Foundation. Local Mosaic Artist, Lauren Bosmeny, instructed the CTP staff and students in the art of mosaics during the bench project. Lauren and a local group of mosaic artists designed and created the bases for all four benches. Over 700 tiles were individually designed and dedicated to local community members who inspire kindness. Each of the tiles were carefully placed and installed on the benches by CTP students.
