Please join Arts Council of Tamworth and mural artist David Fichter at the K. A. Brett School in Tamworth during the last two weeks of March to build Tamworth’s 250th Mosaic Mural. Building a mosaic is fun, creative, skill-building, communal and relaxing, a chance to visit with neighbors while making history. Come for an hour, a whole session, or every session to build this beautiful permanent artwork in celebration of Tamworth’s 250th. No special skills are needed—David will teach us. Bring your friends and relations, bring all the generations, so that many hands can share in this creation—and you don’t have to be from Tamworth! Public sessions are Wednesday, March 23 from 6-8PM, Thursday, March 24 from 3:15-5PM, Saturday, March 26 from 9AM-1PM, Tuesday, March 29 from 6-8PM and Wednesday, March 30, 3:15-5PM.
What is Tamworth’s 250th Mosaic Mural? In honor of Tamworth’s 250th anniversary, Arts Council of Tamworth is working with mural artist David Fichter on the creation of two large glass mosaics celebrating the attributes—historical, cultural, ecological—that make Tamworth special to those of us who live and spend time here. Students and community members have designed and contribute elements for Fichter to incorporate into a mural template for all of us to build. The murals will be installed on the left-hand front of the Brett School, a town-owned building and a location that will be visible to everyone who drives by.
Artist David Fichter has been creating community murals and mosaics for over 30 years, working all over the United States and in other countries, including Armenia, Georgia, and Nicaragua. He has worked with youth of all ages on over 200 permanent murals, in addition to another 70 commissioned projects.
