Using over 500 selfies from the residents of Mount Pleasant, Michigan, I created four 
composite 
portraits representing variations of gender and age that was in turn converted
into a mosaic with the submitted images. The completed digital image was 
made into 6" x 6"
high fire porcelain tiles then installed in "Jockey Alley" at the entrance to Art Reach
of Mid Michigan. 
With stability guaranteed for 100 years, this legacy piece will allow
the community to refer to the depicted participants for decades to come. 

"Mount Pleasant Community Portrait" was unveiled as part of the Art Reach
anniversary celebration on 9 June, 2016.
