Artist Carol Krentzman installed her newest mosaic—based on a “History of Natick” theme—at Court Street in Natick Center on Friday.
The mosaic stands 12 feet high and 64 inches wide, and adds to a collection of other public art displays downtown, including Krentzman’s “We the People” mosaic. She says it’s her biggest mosaic, and that her grandson estimates it includes 6,000 tiles.
Featured on it are the South Natick Dam, the old baseball factory, a fire that changed the looked of downtown Natick, and more.
She recently finished her studio work and this weekend got to screwing the mosaic panels onto the wall and adding other finishing touches. Tilling, grouting and other glamorous stuff.
