Little pieces coming together

Tuesday, October 5th, 2021

Local artist Elizabeth Gómez has been working on a mosaic mural for the Magical Bridge Playground in Red Morton, a Redwood City park, for two years. Now it is done. Nanette made an opportunity to visit Elizabeth on site and came home with a Whirligig Interview.

Elizabeth’s mosaic mural is beautiful! and a wonderful gift to our community, not just because of the beauty of the mural, but also because she involved so many community members in the making of it during these last 20 months of covid. Read Elizabeth Gómez’s Whirligig Interview here.

Elizabeth Gómez, Magical Bridge Mural, 2021

We are pleased to have our You Are The Tree project included in an upcoming book, Embodied Forest, published by ecoartspace.

Twelve of our artist books are now being carried by Country Lights Books at the San Gregorio General Store in San Gregorio, California. Spot on if you made the connection to City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. Country Lights proprietor George is a big fan of Lawrence Ferlinghetti, who apparently was also a big fan of the San Gregorio Store as a music venue.
