The Greening Green Street Mosaic Project started last year as a collaboration between the Green Street Arts Center AfterSchool Program, HOT Schools teaching artist and nationally known mosaicist Debora Aldo, Wesleyan students, and members of the Middletown community. Watch the project video from last semester.
The goal is to create a common space to celebrate the integration of art, math, and science – a space that serves as a beautiful entryway to Green Street, a living laboratory for education programs, and an artful representation of our community here in the North End of Middletown.
We are asking our community to come together and help with the project. There are lots of ways you can get involved. You can:
1. Sponsor an AfterSchool student’s mosaic Please note if you are donating on behalf of Deb put Aldo/GSAC in the subject line on the check. And thanks for helping out!
2. Make your own mosaic
3. Volunteer to help with installation — come ready to get dirty and help install the heavy mosaics in our garden in late spring. Call or email Green Street at 860-685-7871 or if you are interested in helping us with installation in late spring/early summer.
4. Volunteer to help with a half day activity – we’ll need extra volunteers to help the elementary students with the process on March 26, 27, and 28th half days from about 1:00-4:00pm. If you could lend a hand, please let me know. You’ll get to learn how to make a pebble mosaic too!
