Magnificent new Mosaic at the East Side Food Cooperative

Picture of a man putting the finishing touches on a mosaic including a bright sun.

I was fortunate enough last week
to be on hand for the final touch-up of magnificent mosaic mural that now
graces the South external wall of the Eastside Food Cooperative.  The work of art, created by area youth under
the mentorship of artist Sharra Frank, is stunning – a happy visual respite for
Central Avenue travelers.

ArtsWork, a
project of COMPASS,
employs young people during the summer months, giving them an opportunity to
learn a skill, to learn some income, and to experience the work that an artist
does.

The formal
installation was part of the community BBQ sponsored by the Eastside Food
Cooperative.
