What happens when you take two world class organizations, The Pittsburgh Penguins and The Mario Lemieux Foundation, and combine it with our mosaic technology, services, and attention to artistic detail: one amazing online photo mosaic experience. The initial goal was to create a large permanent 20ft x 8ft mural in new Penguins CONSOL arena, however with the addition of touch screen kiosks and an online photo mosaic, it became much more. The Mario Mosaic was a great way to involve the community and help raise funds for cancer and neonatal research; without a doubt it has become a main attraction at the new hockey arena.
For a donation of just $25 to the Magee-Womens Foundation, participants of Magee’s 100th anniversary celebration were able to include a photograph of themselves, their child, or another special person in their life in the Magee 100 Mosaic. Thousands of submitted photos helped to create this 14ft x 7ft Magee 100 Mosaic — a beautiful piece of artwork that hangs in the main lobby of the hospital.
Each donation was used to support the Patient Care Fund at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC. The Patient Care Fund provides many necessary items for patients and their families while being cared for at Magee.
