Listen to Marc talk about the project and watch an in process video.

“The Care Takers” is a natural stone mosaic installed at Ocean View Elementary School in Norfolk, Virginia. It is part of my public art commission to create mosaics for elementary schools there. This mosaic features a strong message of environmental stewardship, inspired by the school’s amazing hands-on science programs, including aquaculture and water quality issues. Older students guide young learners through the life cycle of the oyster, aquaculture techniques, and the process of analyzing water quality. This mosaic includes relief elements that project out from the wall, inviting student to touch and interact with the artwork.
