Bringing Cape Cod Together, Piece by Piece – An 8 foot by 9 foot mixed-medial mural of Cape Cod, consisting of nearly 300 six inch square tiles, has been created through the collaborative efforts of 150 creative individuals living with disabilities, their affiliated organizations, as well as local artists, teachers and businesses. CapeCodCAN! Art Director Tessa D’Agostino and Mural Consultant Cris Reverdy provide leadership for this project.
11 Cape organizations in 14 different locations were led by local Cape artists in the development of this mosaic. The groups included representation from the following organizations: The Brain Injury Association of MA., Cape Abilities, Cape Organization for the Rights of the Disabled (CORD), Community Connections, Inc., Community Support Associates, Inc (SCA), Independence Farm, Inc., Latham Centers, Inc., Living Independently Forever, Inc. (LIFE), Palaemon House, Riverview School, Towards Greater Independence (TGI).
The Mosaic was assembled initially into five distinct segments representing geographical areas of Cape Cod and put on temporary display at five different Cape Cod Five Cent Bank Branch Offices.
The project culminated in an unveiling ceremony of the full, unified mosaic in a permanent public display at the Cape Cod Regional Transportation Authority, Hyannis Transportation Center, Hyannis MA. The ceremony took place June 24, 2015. View photos of the unveiling ceremony at this blog post. For a video about the mosaic, check out this blog post.
