Mosaic Mural

Published on June 4, 2014 by njeaccu01
Synopsis

Students at Glen Rock’s Richard E. Byrd School make a permanent mark on their school with a student-driven mosaic mural commemorating their school’s namesake, Antarctic explorer Richard Byrd. Students researched Byrd and his travels before putting together individual mosaics that – placed together on the side of the school building – creates a cohesive picture of Byrd’s exploits. With matching funding from the Artists in Education grant program, students and teachers worked with New Jersey artist Kit Sailer to complete the project.
