A sea-themed mosaic, created by art class students at Elkridge Landing Middle School, adds color and depth to the branch’s Route 1 façade. The students worked under the direction of Mary Deacon Opasik, an artist and designer from the Howard County Arts Council.
The mosaic project is a component of A+ Partners in Education and was developed and coordinated by Howard County Library, Howard County Government, the Howard County Public School System, and Howard County Arts Council. The project was funded through a grant from the Howard County Arts Council with matching funds from County Government. Mosaic materials include ceramics, plates, pottery, colored glass, and china donated by Elkridge Landing Middle School students and the community.
