PROJECT INFO

This urban environment incorporates mosaic, FOTERA concrete terrazzo, steel and engraved brick into a public art piece covering over two miles of sidewalk connecting the Largo Town Center and the Morgan Boulevard Metro stations. 30 FOTERA concrete terrazzo murals representative of Maryland are set into the sidewalk. Brick pavers engraved with poetry, quotations and factual references spiral out from each Icon. Two mosaic walls, one that highlights the local historic figure Garrett Morgan and one that includes a 20′ compass rosette mosaic in front of it, complete the design. As commuters move between the stations and to their places of business or residence, they read the passages and view the colorful mosaics and FOTERA concrete terrazzo Icons.

The mosaic portion of this section was fabricated by Cheryl Foster. The terrazzo inlays were created by Creative Design Resolutions.
