Nancy Karigaca and Beverly Shalom are co-coordinators for the mosaic tile project:
“My priority has been to work on projects that empower community members, experienced and inexperienced mosaickers, to create beauty and have a positive impact on the neighborhood,” said Shalom. “We try to involve everyone in the community, and ask people who are passing by to adhere some tiles, so that they will have a sense of pride in the work and the park and want to take care of it.”
