The Mosaic Muse is a juried exhibit organized by Art In City Hall’s Exhibitions Advisory Committee.  A call was sent to professional artists from the region whose work explores traditional and innovative techniques related to mosaics.  Artists were not restricted to traditional materials like ceramics, glass or stone.  Works could have been submitted in any medium as long as it referenced the concept.  Artists were encouraged to explore patterning, surface texture, collage or other approaches that are associated with mosaic imagery.
