Overview

Tieton Mosaic designed and fabricated seven mosaics based on classic fruit labels from Central Washington. The mosaics of varying dimensions are made of glass and ceramic tiles and mounted outside on buildings around Tieton City Park.

A plaque accompanying each mosaic describes the history of that label and the families and companies whose hard work
and commitment made the area so important and productive, the brochure notes.

Goals

Addressing the national issue of what happens to small, struggling towns.
The large fruit label mosaics will use history to attract tourists. But while those murals highlight the Old West and people long gone, many of the families that built the agricultural industry are still in the area.
