Mosaics in Transit Mall

Various Artists

Lithomosaic designs were installed in the downtown Long Beach Transit Mall at eight stations spanning three blocks on both sides of the street in 2010 by artist Robin Brailsford. The LithoMosaic technique involves creating a large-scale design and blowing it up to full size. Next, a piece of plastic is placed over the design, with a piece of mesh over the top of it and the mesh is removed before the concrete is places to seal the mosaic.
