I don’t have much to say about the mosaics at Fruitvale Village, other than, if you have not been there, you should go. My pictures do not do them justice, as they must be examined in person to truly appreciate the number, size, and breadth of designs incorporated.
round bench in plaza ~ approx 20 feet across
mosaic gateway to the plaza
large scale stone & tile mosaic
more sidewalk/pedestrian mosaics
traditional Roman technique using uniform stone squares
designs incorporate culturally diverse references
a subtle and consistent palette is achieved using natural stone tiles
these too are crafted from natural stone tiles
I love the image of the tree cradled by human hands.
Very cool! I’ve been through Fruitvale Village many times to and from BART, but I’ve never stopped to fully appreciate the mosaics. Thanks for pointing them out.
