Community Project with Family Table

Help us Make a Collaborative Mosaic for Family Table

NEMS members will be creating a collaborative mosaic for Family Table, a food pantry operated by the Jewish Family and Children’s Services in Waltham, MA. The theme of the installation will be “Nourish”, to recognize the importance of food and art in keeping us healthy. The mosaic will be a way to beautify their space, to raise funds for families experiencing food insecurity, and thank donors for their generosity.  The design has not yet been finalized, but we’re working with the Jewish Family and Children’s Services to decide on the shape, size and other specifications.  

Interested? Sign up to make a section of the mosaic. We’ll be in touch with more details. 

Your commitment would be to: 

1.    Follow guidelines provided by NEMS (We might specify colors, imagery or materials based on the final design.)

2.     If possible, attend a zoom session with Bernice Behar from Family Table to learn about the organization and its mission

3.     Submit a sketch of your design idea to Emily make sure the whole piece will work together

4.     Make your mosaic using your own adhesive and tesserae. We will provide you with backer board.

5.     Send the piece to Emily for inclusion in the installation

Finances

We applied for a small grant to help cover the costs of participation.  If finances are a barrier, we can provide tesserae and adhesive and/or pay for postage for you to send your piece back when it’s complete. We would love to have as many people as possible be part of the project, so please sign up if you’re interested, and contact Emily about the costs. [email protected] 

Important Note: This project is open to all NEMS members who are up-to-date with their dues. Membership is based on the calendar year from January 1 to December 31. So, please renew your membership or join at https://www.newenglandmosaicsociety.com/membership/
