This community project was an initiative by the Multicultural OutReach Effort organization to celebrate diversity and promote cultural and racial harmony through creative, artistic expression.
The garden theme of the design was created to complement the physical site location at Roxbury Mills Farm and Garden Center. The mural wall is 32' wide x 8' high, and is located on Jackson Street, by the back entrance to Roxbury.
Various pieces and fragments of different materials, colors, textures and cultures have been combined by hundreds of community volunteers to create this beautiful and unified mosaic mural. The items embedded in the side borders have cultural significance to their donors. The mirrors in the mural reflect their viewers, who in turn, become an integral part of the mosaic.
