A mosaic tends to be a collection of tiles or glass pieces of various size and color organized into patterns or forms.  These artists, inspired by Aldo Leopold’s “Land Ethic” will exhibit work that seeks to “enlarge the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants, and animals, or collectively: the land.”
