Betsy Gallery of Elizabeth Gallery Mosaics and Project Manager, Robin Elander of Global Good Impact Consulting are hosting a free mosaic making workshop Saturday, September 29 from 2:30 - 5:30 PM. A community reception will be held after the workshop from 5:30- 7:30 PM at 723 State Street.

We will share how the community can get involved in creating the Santa Barbara Timeline Mosaic, a 50 - foot timeline mosaic of Santa Barbara's history from the Jurassic Period to modern times.

The public will be invited to purchase a personalized tile for $150 which will help raise funds to fabricate the mosaic and to offer free classes where members of the community can help create the mosaic.

The project is modeled after London's Queenhithe Dock Mosaic, a 100-foot mosaic highlighting London's history from the Roman period to modern times. "We would like to invite residents, businesses and local organizations to help us create this local legacy art project that will share Santa Barbara's story from an environmental, anthropological, business and cultural perspective, said lead artist Betsy Gallery.

The Santa Barbara Timeline Mosaic is a project that will be built in collaboration with the entire community, and ultimately will be an educational public art piece for visitors and residents alike for generations (500 + years) to come, once installed. Our goal is to allow people of all ages to learn about our ancient past, recent history and to inspire our future.
