Project Description

Artist Jaime Scholnick was commissioned to create one of the murals for the Residential Treatment Program. Scholnick worked closely with local culture bearers to identify notable landmarks that represent the history of the neighborhood. She created the artwork on large plywood panels with collaged photographs, incorporating her unique painting technique that includes meticulous line work over the pictures to unify them into a large neighborhood quilt. The completed design was translated and fabricated by Tile Artesans into ceramic tile. The artwork was installed in August 2021 by Premier Tile and Marble.
