Tieton Mosaic Project

TietonMosaic.jpg

The Tieton Mosaic Project engages regional artists and artisans, local community members, K-12 students, business owners, and civic leaders in cycle of planning, education/apprenticeship, and hands-on art-making to accomplish twin goals: reinforce the character of Tieton with the bold design aesthetics of the vintage fruit labels, and establish a new self-sustaining artisan business. Tieton does not have a strong historical architectural tradition. Buildings are workmanlike cinderblock-style from the 1940-60s. However, the town itself has a clearly defined core, with a beautiful park surrounded by four blocks of storefronts. A modest amount of graphically distinct signage executed in traditional craft materials gives Tieton a distinctive identity. Based in Tieton, these businesses train and employ members of the community, marketing their products nationally within the incubator of Mighty Tieton. 

Thus, the Tieton Mosaic Project produced a city signage system, inspired by the New York City subway system mosaics and local fruit label design. Starting with these public signs, we will expand our repertoire to a production line. The mosaic studio follows the Mighty Tieton business model. The initial project was a joint public/private venture by TA&H, the City of Tieton, Mighty Tieton, Paper Hammer Studios, the Educational Foundation of America, the Raynier Foundation, Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA) and the Yakima Valley Community Foundation. In July of 2013, the National Endowment of the Arts awarded Tieton Arts and Humanities (TA&H) a $50,000 Our Town grant to launch the Tieton Mosaic Project.  

This year, the NEA awarded TA&H a grant of $45,000 for Vintage, a project celebrating and renewing the bold typographic fruit crate label designs from the early 1900s in the Yakima Valley. Tieton Mosaic will design and create seven glass tile mosaics approximately 9 x 9 feet featuring local fruit labels that will be installed in public locations around the town of Tieton.
