After the attention that the Canada 150 Mosaic captured within the community, the volunteer team was eager to maintain that momentum and level of participation and soon entered another mosaic project into the City of London's Neighbourhood Decision Making program – the Old East Village Wayfinding Mosaics.
Old East Village Wayfinding Mosaics
Meet The Artists
ABOUT THE mosaics
A project that was entered into the City of London's Neighbourhood Decision Making program by the London Clay Art Centre and supported by the Old East Village Business Improvement Area (OEV BIA), the two eye catching Wayfinding Mosaics bring a unique element to the area and highlight the importance and value of public art to the vibrancy of communities.
The Elizabeth and Marshall St. Wayfinding Mosaics feature the work of accomplished ceramic artists Susan Day and Beth Turnbull Morrish. Beth was responsible for the creation and installation of the lettering on both mosaics. Susan designed and oversaw the installation of the Elizabeth and Marshall St. mosaics, and produced dozens of press molded and hand pinched forms that comprise the majority of each installation. Kerri Jerome was an assistant on LCAC’s Wayfinding mosaic. Her involvement in this project was essential to its completion. In May 2019, a car crashed through the wall destroying a part of the mosaic. Susan Day was rehired by the building’s owner to fix the damaged section of the mosaic and bring the beautiful piece back to life. Both mosaics have brought a unique element to the area and they highlight the importance and value of public art to the vibrancy of communities.
