Bringing to life landscape architect W. Gary Smith's wonderful mural design, Statements supplied the tile for this lovely mosaic entitled "Sisters of the Sun and Moon." Working with local tile artist, Alessandra Haines to produce the dancing Beans, colorful Corn Cobs and striated Corn Leaves, this project was a joy. The grand opening party, at the Ojos y Maños exhibit in the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, will run from 11:30 AM to 6 PM on October 22nd.

And, revealing the finished product:
Join us at the Grand Opening on October 22, all day!
