The Trinity Ecology Mosaic Was Created as a Cummunity Project

Lynn Tomlinson supervised the creation of a huge multi-paneled mural for the Trinity Prep School. Students helped to decide what element should be on each panel. Parents and students helped with the grouting. On this day grout had to be wiped off of the mosaic to show more of the ceramics. People came in shifts to help out. When I got to Trinity Prep, I had to ask around to find the classroom where all the creation was happening.

Some panels were on tables being grouted and these panels in the sketch were leaning against the wall to be cleaned. Volunteers and Lynn wiped away grout to showcase the colorful ceramics. All of the birds and animals in the mosaic are native to Central Florida. Some of the leaf shaped ceramics had the names of contributors enscribed. This was a labor of love with everyone lending a hand.

Unfortunately Lynn and her family have left Central Florida to go to Baltimore, so it is unlikely that we will be seeing any more of her mosaics lightening up the walls around town. I always seem to reporting on amazing talents that are leaving or have left Orlando.
