Mosaic by the Brookland Artspace Residents sign now

As an organization, Artspace has been deeply vested in creating a sense of community and ownership among the various artist communities that work and reside in their buildings around the country. Residents of the Brookland Artspace Lofts were shocked and dismayed when the mosaic that would be added to the facade was already designed and scheduled to be put up, with little input from the individuals actually living there.

The mural will be the face of the building, and a major part of our identity as a community. Not only does it face the main street as part of the entrance, but it is also a backdrop to the benches outside, meant to further encourage interaction and socialization between residents and with the neighborhood community.

Being artists we understand the arduous process it takes to design, much less redesign a project of this magnitude, and we are not looking to start completely from scratch. The materials graciously donated and the color palette are elements we would be grateful to work with -- even the larger panels of tiles would still be used as background. It is the actual design of the smaller tiles that we have an interest in.

We would bring about a collaborative redesign by self-organizing all those residents interested several times before the end of September, finalizing a design to be approved or not. Although we all moved in for a variety of reasons, the most common ones were to be a part of a unique community living in a building dedicated to supporting the livelihoods of professional artists and their families. The installment of a piece we had no hand in would go against the nature and spirit of that community.

We simply ask for the chance to be involved and engaged, and will endeavor to work swiftly to present something truly representative of the artists residing in the Brookland Artspace Lofts.
