Blind Willie Mosaic Relocation and Restoration - Unveiling celebration August 29, 4pm at L5PCAC. Music by W8ing4UFO's and Larry Griffith Acoustic duo. See video here The mosaic's artist, Jason Evers Johnson, was commissioned to do the mosaic in 2005 for Findley Plaza. Since Findley Plaza is scheduled for renovation, the mosaic was going to be thrown away by the city. Don and Judy Bender stepped in and saved the art. The mosaic has been stored at the L5PCAC for two years. Moving and restoring it has been a very expensive endeavor since just one piece of the mosaic weighs 800 pounds (and it is in about 15 big pieces). Jason was flown here from his present home in Italy to restore the mosaic and is using the kintsugi method of restoration. This method repairs the lines of the broken pieces with gold and treats the breakage as part of the history of the object rather than something to disguise. Donate and receive an engraved brick to help with the costs here.
