Join the Mattatuck Museum Team
to Install Waterbury's
Largest Community Mural Project
Saturday, June 9, 2012
The Mural will be assembled on this "blank canvas" at 90 South Main Street.
The City of Waterbury and the Arts and Culture Collaborative have been chosen to participate in the state's City Canvases Initiative.
The project is the creation of a large porcelain mosaic designed by Connecticut artists Joanne and Bruce Hunter. The mosaic will be composed of 60 individual 3 x 5 ft. panels, each composed of thousands of individual colored tiles.
Assembling the community mosaic requires hundreds of volunteers.

The artists will transfer a color design to each panel and cut tiles in advance, similar to a paint-by number kit. The panels and tiles will be transported to the Palace Theater stage for mosaic panel fabrication. Panels will be set up on tables and community volunteers will adhere tiles into the patterned designs.
