The SIGNS International Mosaic Project : 160 Mosaicists, 33 nations !


Last year Caroline  Jung had an idea for a wonderful art project. A theme that would connect everybody. Symbols, scripts of old cultures, many nations should come together in one piece of art and real artists could create a piece of their own culture as a part of a whole panel. 





There was just one media capable of realizing exactly this: mosaic.

After a first  a call to the art community, 40 artists committed to make a small piece and send it to her. Little by little, it came trickling.

At the end of 2014, they were 120 and they were still coming ! For weeks Caroline received all these small pieces of art from all around the world. Among them are incredible and unique artwork. The support in the community has been incredible. Even difficulties with different languages disappeared.






Most of the mosaics created are symbols of Peace and Freedom. The artists involved in this project have very different cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds. But they   speak the same language of Art.  It is their hope that this project inspire many more young people around the world to learn to speak the same language of Tolerance and Appreciation of other cultures. One language that leaves behind War and Racism.

At this moment Caroline has 140 pieces of art and you can imagine what the final panel will look like after completion. Once complete, the project will be sold and the money from the sale will be donated to a charitable organization. It is the artists hope that this piece be displayed in a public building, a library, a meeting hall or a museum.

Caroline published this video to promote the project, please help us by sharing this post.
