A mosaic artwork is being planned for the new elementary school at 42 Baldwin Rd in Marblehead. This collaborative work of art will be a cornerstone of the new school and, we hope, a source of pride that is representative of our town, our students and our citizens. The mosaic itself will be located on an interior wall of the school, visible through the glass windows, and on the exterior section of wall immediately above it.
Three reputable mosaic artists make up the team for this project: David Fichter, Yetti Frenkel, and Joshua Winer. These talented artists would like to ask people and organizations in Marblehead to share our thoughts, feelings, and ideas about the town that might be relevant for the artwork design. Please take some time to answer the following questions.

Question Title

* 1. What are some of your favorite places in Marblehead, and what makes them special to you? These could be green spaces or landmarks, or even a special spot that only you have discovered.

Question Title

* 2. If you grew up in town, what are some of your uniquely-Marblehead childhood memories?

Question Title

* 3. What are some memorable Marblehead stories; traditions, events, or activities that you think speak to the special character of the town and its people?

Question Title

* 4. Please share with us your thoughts on aspects of the Coffin, Gerry and Bell elementary schools that you feel are important to preserve in art or are visually interesting to you? These could represent indoor or outdoor activities you remember fondly that were unique to each school building. Examples might include sledding on the hill at Gerry, working in the organic garden at Bell, the painted storybook artwork in the halls of Gerry, and so forth.

Question Title

* 5. Lastly, images are very important for the artists to use as inspiration for drawing the design. If you have any photos that you’ve taken of landmarks, personal events, family photos from the past or present, please share them with us. Panoramas, close-ups and anything in between are welcome.
