Artists Aileen Barr and
Colette Crutcher (below) created the mosaic design, a
colorful, flowing, sea-to-sky theme, with fish near the
foot of the steps and birds, leaves and stars near the top.
The mosaic consists of 163 separate mosaic panels, one for
each step riser. Community members were able to participate
directly in creating the panels via a series of workshops
that the artists held during summer 2004.
