Ben’s Bells has installed a series of kindness-themed mosaic murals in Tucson, Connecticut, and the surrounding areas. These brightly colored public art pieces symbolize community connection and support through kindness, and are created by a diverse group of students, local artists, and community members wherever they are located.
In December of 2009, the Ben’s Bells Project, TUSD’s Community Transition Programs and the Marshall Foundation brought world-renowned and award-winning mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar from Philadelphia to Tucson. He taught the “Zagar Method” and worked alongside students and community members to install mosaic art onto two public walls within Main Gate Square. The Zagar workshop resulted in the completion of the first large-scale Kindness Corridor Mosaic Art Mural.
Since then, Ben’s Bells has been involved in creating dozens more community murals, and we regularly install our beloved “Be Kind” flower and “Kindness Tree” at schools and community organizations in Arizona, Connecticut, and the surrounding areas.
