In 2009, The Mario Lemieux Foundation contacted us to create a massive 20ft x 8ft photo mosaic mural in the Pittsburgh Penguins PPG Paints arena along with two interactive kiosk and an interactive online mosaic and kiosk. The Mario Mosaic was a great way to involve the community and help raise funds for cancer and neonatal research; it was a main attraction at the new hockey arena. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Mario Lemieux Foundation. Picture Mosaics has teamed up with the foundation again to completely overhaul the mosaic mural, kiosks, and online mosaic.
For this years Villanova 1842 Day students, faculty, alumni and parents were asked “What does Villanova mean to you?” and their answers were used to create this wordle work of art. Their words were compiled and built into a word mosaic that depicts the Saint Thomas of Villanova Church on campus.
At Villanova University, 1842 Day is an event celebrating their official day of giving. Donations made at this event and throughout the year go toward funding the colleges within the University as well as other organizations, such as Special Olympics, Disaster Relief Fund and various Missions and Ministries. Donations can be made here.
