PROJECT: fellowship mosaic
As part of Sure Foundation Lutheran Church’s 10th Anniversary Celebration, friends and family of the New York City church created a ”Fellowship Mosaic” artwork as a celebration of the faith, community, and life of Sure Foundation. Working with Jonathon Roberts and Pastor Tim Bourman of Sure Foundation’s Leadership Team, Charis was the conceptualist, lead artist and executor of the design.
The mosaic tells a visual story with favorite Bible passages, Christian symbols and Bible stories. The mosaic “tiles” are made from Metrocards, New York City’s transit ticket used on subways and buses. Each Metrocard has been turned into a work of art and then installed on the wall in Sure Foundation’s common area. The process for the creation of the Fellowship Artwork was designed to let everyone have a hand in it. Over 150 people participated in the creation of the mosaic, which displays over 400 Metrocards.
This configuration of “tiles” is located at the center of the mosaic.
From this angle, one sees how the tiles are floating away from the wall on brass nails.
