Today, our artist in residence put the final touches on a gorgeous Centennial mosaic. Every child in the school contributed a tile to this work of art, which was also designed collectively by the school.
There are design elements that nod to Edgewood’s past, such as an apple tree (the property was once an orchard). And there are other details, such as the names of the current teachers excised into green leaves at the base of the tree.
The mosaic border is composed of national flags. These represent the ancestries of all Edgewood students who have come through the school. The mosaic is installed diagonally from what used to be the principal’s office in recent years, and was once the original library.
