DESCRIPTION

Pieces of Hope is an art exhibit of original mosaic works created by residents of under-served communities of Los Angeles. High quality saleable works of mosaic art will be represented in this show. With an emphasis on recyclable materials, these works include accent furntiure pieces, illuminated art, picture frames, decorative mirrors, planters and serving dishes.

The work in this exhibit was produced in Piece by Piece workshops. Proceeds from the sales of the art are given back to the the artists. Modeled after successful micro-enterprise programs in South Africa, Piece by Piece provides instruction from professional artists and all materials free of charge to teach valuable skills and nurture entrepreneurship.
