The 2024 New England Mosaic project has begun!

The Mosaic includes more than 250 individual canvas “tiles” created by professional and amateur artists in the Pioneer Valley. Together these miniature works combine to become a 24′ wall of art depicting this year’s theme, I Love New England.

 

Thank you to all of our 2023 Mosaic artists!

Overview:

The New England Mosaic invites the Western Mass. creative community to create and display visual art representing a favorite aspect of New England. This year’s Mosaic theme is I Love New England.  Donated artwork will help fund art scholarships for local students.

The New England Mosaic invites you to create one individual canvas “tile,” which when displayed with others, becomes part of a 24’ fine art mosaic wall that captures the beauty and diversity of New England life. The New England Mosaic will be displayed at multiple venues and showcased at the Agawam Community Artists and Artisans’ Pioneer Valley Art Festival and Scantic River’s Art Festival.
