The Latin Quarter Mosaic Project is a unique community-driven mosaic art installation at the Blessed Sacrament Church Plaza in Boston’s Latin Quarter, Jamaica Plain. Community members will contribute to the design of two hanging mosaic pieces on the face of the Church, mosaic stair risers at the main entrance, and on mosaic table tops on the picnic tables in the Plaza. Community volunteers and youth leaders from partner Hyde Square Task Force will learn how to create mosaics and will share their knowledge during community workshops producing the mosaics in the Plaza during the spring and summer. The mosaics will enrich this well used community space.
