Calder Community Mosaic: Installation – part 5. Finishing Touches

8th December 2017 By Admin

The Calder Community Mosaic was designed to fit the entire wall of the Community Room, just inside the main entrance of the new Calder Branch Library by MBAC Architects. Illuminated by special lighting above the artwork and also open to the daylight through the floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around almost the entire exterior of the LEED® Silver building, the mosaic is clearly visible from the street and library forecourt.

After a year and a half of preparation, the Calder Community Mosaic was given a final wipe, polish and an inspection and then it was finished!

In the first weeks of 2018 the Edmonton Public Library will take occupancy of their newest branch and complete their fit out of the space. Stay tuned for an official opening date in the New Year!

Our thanks to Craig Lemiski from Ellis Don for keeping us all safe on his construction site.  His team has done a great job building the new library and it will be a public space that the whole community will be proud of.  We also would like to thank the support and assistance from Robert Harpin, Andrea Bowes and Eva Marie Clarke from the Edmonton Arts Council.

This project is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council on behalf of the Edmonton Public Library and the City of Edmonton.

Calder Community Mosaic: Installation – part 4. Grouting the Tiles

7th December 2017 By Admin

At the end of a busy week the last major step was to apply the grout that fills in the gaps between each tile. We chose a middle grey colour that would continue to look good over time and would unite the complete mosaic design together while also giving each unique art-glass triangle tile definition. Thanks again to Csaba and Adam from the Tile Setting Company for their great work!

Calder Community Mosaic: Installation – part 3. Setting the Tiles

6th December 2017 By Admin

Watching the mosaic come together in its final form up onto the Community Room wall was an exciting process. Each part of the overall pattern that forms the final mosaic design was sourced directly from members of the Calder Community who attended one of the community pattern workshops held in June 2016.

In the spirit of the project, the installation team worked together and over one full day we unboxed and prepared each numbered panel before Csaba Bereczki, Journeyman Installer and owner of The Tilesetter Company and his assistant Adam set the patterns in place up on the wall. There is positive energy and everything is looking good!
