Project Description

The County of Los Angeles built four of its first residential mental health and well-being campuses to address a continuum of needs for the population experiencing homelessness. These Restorative Care Villages will provide a new environment for this vulnerable population with a comprehensive and holistic approach to the interrelated and complex needs of homelessness, substance abuse, mental illness, job training/housing, and medical co-morbidity. Artist Cheryl Molnar was selected to create an artwork for the lobby of the High Desert Mental Health Urgent Care Center. “Birds in Flight” is a mosaic that visually draws viewers into a lush landscape that is both dreamlike and soothingly familiar. Molnar also created a coloring book based on the artwork design, available for distribution at the Center. The mosaic was fabricated and installed by Miotto Mosaic in August 2020.
