Do you know there are over 400 mosaics installed on subway platforms in the five boroughs of New York City? Eight years ago, when I was commissioned to create my own version of a Coney Island subway mosaic in a Manhattan family’s bathroom, I began my discovery of this immense underground museum with the largest collection of mosaics in North America.

I’ve taken thousands of photographs of these amazing works and lead many artists, students and enthusiasts through the vast NYC transportation network to view these underappreciated works of art.  As a professional mosaic artists, I will explain the process of how the mosaics were designed, fabricated and installed, giving fellow mosaic artists insight into the complex process of creating a smalti mosaic.

As a member of the New England Mosaic Society, I am offering a private discounted tour for fellow members and their guests, (one guest per member please).

The cost for my tour is normally $75 per person, but for New England Mosaic Society members and their guests I’m discounting the cost to $60 per person.  There is a minimum of 10 people to hold the tour, and a maximum of 15, so sign up today and join me for a private and technical look at these masterpieces!
