Juliana Martinez has created a magical storybook backdrop for the children's play area of this affordable housing development for families. The 40 ft. mural was assembled from over three thousand clay and glass pieces to depict a wonderland of bejeweled sunlight, calla lilies, hummingbirds, and butterflies. Each tile is completely handmade, with the artist inspired by the Arts and Crafts' architectural features and color palette of the development. Community participation is an important component in the artist's work, with over two hundred students at the adjacent 28th Street Elementary School involved in the fabrication of the central magnolia tree motif.
