New hand-cut mosaic reflects Cedar-Riverside culture, community

A new stone mosaic was taking shape Saturday in Minneapolis.

A panel selected artist Craig David to design the 370-square-foot public artwork at Currie Park. He invited the community to set a piece of tile, in part because he says the art itself is derived from a sense of community.

“It’s a multi-cultural look at the variety of immigrants who have come through the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood,” he said.

Each tile is its own work of art. They’re hand-cut, with poetry and cultural stories contributed by locals.
