The Pittsburgh Glass Center Neighborhood Mosaic Project a collaborative residency and exhibition between Pittsburgh artist Daviea Davis, the Pittsburgh Glass Center, local schools and the community. The two-fold residency and exhibition began in January 2009.
During the residency Davis visited the schools to create community glass mosaics with students in the classroom. In PGC’s Hodge Gallery, she concurrently integrated the students’ ideas into a 360° glass mosaic panorama of the unique characteristics and joys of the City of Pittsburgh.
