Library Art

Avondale Civic Center Library
This tile mosaic adorns a side wall of the Avondale Civic Center Public Library. It was created by students of the Rancho Santa Fe Elementary school and artist Petra Adams and installed on the library wall in 2009. Each square depicts a different scene from Avondale's past and present.

Adams was recently commissioned by the library to create more mosaic art of which I will post a picture on another day.

I'm a huge fan of folk art in general and children's art in particular so of course I think this is just wonderful thanks!
