MOSAIC TECHNIQUE LECTURE | Robin Brailsford
MOSAIC TECHNIQUE LECTURE | Robin Brailsford Big, Bigger Biggest Plaza Monolithic Glass Mosaics How I got there, what the future might be | 26 Minutes When BLACK LIVES MATTER was painted boldly at the White House. We all saw that the scale of public art in the ground plane was about to take off. Today I was contacted by a client for a 60,000' Plaza Monolithic Mosaic (PLM) - a process I invented. That 60,000' glass commission can really only be done in PLM. Today, the largest PLM is a vast 3000'. It depicts deep-sea canyons and 100 life-sized creatures, from a 31’ juvenile Grey Whale to a 13” Mola Mola. In this time of COVID, how could cities and museums bring glass art outside to their plazas and parks to an underserved populace? How can we deliver the highest curatorial vision no matter what the climate - political or atmospheric? Please join Robin at her Artist Booth (floor two of the GAS Market) on Saturday, May 2 2 for a roundtable discussion following this presentation. https://www.robinbrailsford.com | @robinbrailsford
Walter Munk Foundation for the Oceans
Celebrating Walter’s 103rd birthday and the Dedication of THE MAP!
La Jolla Shores is both an ecological haven and a magnet for tourists from around the world. The challenge of maintaining its natural beauty whilst serving millions of visitors every year can only be met through strong community support. With your help, we can make sure that La Jolla Shores is enjoyed as much by future generations as it is today. We have achieved a lot through generous donations of time, skills, and funds – but there is still more to do! We are currently working with The Friends of La Jolla Shores & Litho Mosaic to create this amazing map for the people of San Diego. Our program is diverse – including landscaping, building playgrounds and restrooms, and developing educational materials. Our supporters range from eagle scouts to community leaders – anyone with an interest in our beaches and oceans. www.WalterMunkFoundation.org . www.altasea.org . . . . #WalterMunk #AltaSea #Scripps #ScubaDiving #Whale #Mosaic #Dolphin #garibaldi #surf #seal #SanDiego #california #Ocean #LaJolla #seaturtles #Beach #SDMruals #lajollashores #SD #Sea #Murals #lithomosaics #scrippspier #LaJollaCove #MeetMeAtTheMap #TheMap #WalterMunkFoundation

LithoMosaics: Re-inventing an Ancient Art Form
LithoMosaics makes large-scale mosaics possible for all climates. The issue of freeze/thaw that previously limited exterior mosaics to Mediterranean-like climates is no longer a concern. LithoMosaics is a proprietary process developed by artist Robin Brailsford and concrete contractor Shaw & Sons, Inc.
The beauty of mosaic and the durability of concrete can now be crafted together to give your masterpiece unrivaled longevity at a fraction of the cost of other mediums currently available.
