More help is needed to complete the 24 mosaic tiles that will be embedded in the reconstructed Lodi Avenue sidewalk later this year.
The winning designs were selected as part of the Project Lodi Art contest. Now, members of the community are invited to help bring these concepts to life by cutting ceramic tiles, mortaring them to concrete backerboard and grouting the pieces together, through a series of workshops at the Hutchins Street Square Community Center, 125 S. Hutchins St.
- Tuesdays in January from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., with reservations required. Volunteers may RSVP at 333-5511, or register online at www.lodiarts.org.
- 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Jan. 9 and Saturday, Jan. 16;
- 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21 and Thursday, Jan. 28.
All tools, included safety glasses, are provided to volunteers.
The mosaics will be installed in sidewalks at East Lodi Avenue intersections as part of the street reconstruction project, scheduled to begin in March.
