This is the interview for the Virtual Kings Mountain Art Fair on Labor Day weekend, 2020 about my community mosaic projects on this page
The Cookshack project - October 2017
I led Kings Mountain residents in Woodside to create The Cookshack signage for the Kings Mountain Firehouse and Community Center. The material expenses for this project were funded by the local fire brigade. This signage is hung on top of the cookshack where it is used for the annual Kings Mountain Art Fair on Labor Day weekend event. This project took three and a half days with 27 volunteers
The Mural & Signage project - May 2011
For this project, the Kings Mountain community worked together to fund and create a beautiful 27’ x 2’ signage that reads “Phleger Station” and a 5’ x 9’ mural entitled “Hiking on Kings Mountain.” Forty volunteers donated their time for seven weekends to complete this project, and the donors'names are on hand-made ceramic leaves on the mural as a truly communal piece of art.
Mosaic Benches & Phone Station Pedestal project - July, 2009
Directed by Xuan My Ho, members of the Kings Mountain community completed and installed five elegant mosaic benches and the Verizon pedestal on Sunday, July 12, 2009. It took six Saturdays, two Fridays, one Sunday, and many supporters and 38 volunteers to complete this project.
