The Art of Science
   8 ft. X 30 ft.   Newton South High School Library, Newton MA    [Acrylic on canvas glued to wallboard.]
The Art of Science was sponsored by the Newton South fine and performing arts department in 2015. Invention and innovation are the undercurrents of this mural that celebrates STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) education. From left to right you can "read" the mural. A timeline of innovation though out history begins with the Lascaux Cave Paintings, the evolution of lions as an art form from different cultures, pioneers of science (Raphael's School of Athens, da Vinci, Newton, Marie Curie, Mariah Mitchell, and Ramanujan) , to the present depths of research, and into the future that is yet to be shaped. This mural welcomes viewers to interpret, synthesize, and be inspired by what they have learned here at South and beyond. The right half of the mural asks viewers to take ownership of how they will contribute to our collective future. It was designed by the artist based on ideas and drawings of the students. It was painted by the students during art class and on weekends.

The World in Andover
   8.5 ft. X 33 ft,   Andover High School, Andover, MA    [Acrylic on canvas glued to wall]
Andover High School students collaborated with the artist and art teacher Jessica Daviso, to create a large mural on a curved wall in the high school. The wall features prominent figures who are a part of Andover's rich history. Among them are abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Ann Bradstreet, known as the first American poet. Historic town buildings like Memorial Hall Library and Old Town Hall can also be seen in the mural. It also includes paintings of national birds from different countries, representing the school's diversity and the many countries that AHS students call home. Centered in the mural is a mill-wheel with the statement: "Drops of water turn a mill, singly none, singly none. Think globally, act locally." The water flowing through the mill wheel transforms into a quilt that is made up of the United Nation's sustainable development goals.

The design was enlarged on to plastic which was then cut into templates to create the tile pieces. Other areas were created separately in glass mosaic and then combined.
