As part of the Mesa Conference SAMA member Kim Emerson led two workshops on large-scale architectural mosaics.

Participating SAMA members fabricated a series of five panels (designed by Kim) in a fun-filled mosaic marathon! They utilized Kim’s method of face-taping the design and thinsetting it to panels. The finished panels were then donated to the Southwest Human Development, a not-for-profit organization with the mission of creating a positive future for young children. The mosaic panels were mounted on the exterior wall of SWHD’s four-story building in Phoenix, Arizona.
