Trolley Station Artwork Honored by American Society of Mosaic Artists
The mosaic mural by Jeanne Seagle at the Madison Avenue Trolley Line's Orleans Station was selected for inclusion in Mosaic Arts International, an annual exhibit that is part of the American Society of Mosaic Artists' annual conference. A digital image of the mural will be projected at the exhibit, which is held at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, AZ from March 20 to April 29.
Seagle was commissioned by the Memphis Area Transit Authority through UrbanArt to create the mural, which is installed on an 8-foot tall, 5-foot diameter column and depicts images of Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, B.B. King and Johnny Cash, all of whom recorded at Sun Studio, which is right around the corner from this trolley stop.
