Um Bonde para Santa Teresa

Tomorrow, August 25,  these 4 mosaics will travel together with me and Anna from Brasilia to Rio de Janeiro. On Saturday, 26 August, they will be installed with 96 of similar tram mosaic designs from various mosaic enthusiasts from all over Brazil and South America in a wall along the closed down tracks of the tram that is a land mark of the old part of town Santa Tereza in Rio de Janeiro. This community mosaic got inspired by Andréa Aires Imbiriba, a mosaic artist from Rio de Janeiro. When the first 100 mosaics got installed in February 2017 it found such great response that a second phase was agreed. My studio “mosaic moments” is participating with 4 bondinhos.
