Kristi Duckworth
Map Mosaic

The theme “Diversity” was chosen to reflect the wide range of backgrounds and ethnicities of the students at White Station Middle School. Over a two-month period students in grades six through eight, faculty, and administrators created individual tiles reflecting the foods, culture, and landmarks of countries, creatures of the oceans, and objects in outer space. The sun rising above the earth represents harmony and hope. The artist hopes to inspire current and future students to find the world around them an interesting place, fostering tolerance and exploration. The completed mosaic contains over 250,000 tiles, and a time capsule is located inside the bench.
