A couple weeks ago, Jim and I went to the Green Turtle downtown to watch the Redskins/Cowboys game. I mention this because that day, I didn’t notice all the beautiful mosaic tiles set into the walkway between Court Street and Market Street. Then on Sunday, I went for a walk downtown with RandomAnna and was pleasantly surprised by all the tiles, which are very beautiful. The City of Frederick has the explanation for the art project on it’s website.
The City of Frederick is pleased to announce that another public art project has been completed and is available for the public to enjoy. Twenty-four beautiful tile mosaics in varying sizes have been installed along a path of blue stone and brick in Carroll Creek Park between Court Street and Market Street. Artist Deirdre Saunder, of Bethesda, Maryland, modeled the designs after water, given the location next to Carroll Creek. Having done a large portion of her other public art projects in mosaics, Ms. Saunder felt the medium lent itself well to the Frederick project, “…Mosaics afford the artist the ability to use color, the freedom to design intricately or boldly and most important, are virtually maintenance free, graffiti proof, frost-free and durable.”
