Sarasota community mosaicers partying at the unveiling event.

Kumquat Court in downtown Sarasota is not exactly one of the cities tourist destinations, however when the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center ran a four week mosaic class this Summer, students wanted to do something with their new skills. The property has gates facing Kumquat Ct that are now covered front and back with glittering mosaic tesserae. The materials include bottles and discarded glass tile, the work was all volunteer. For three weekends the group of almost 20 helping hands braved the heat and rain to create what is now a sparkling tribute to our wonderful community center.
