For Immediate Release
May 25, 2010

(Philadelphia, PA) Moore's Intro. to Community Arts Class collaborated with the after school art program at the Greenfield School to produce a mosaic mural, "Spelling Out Greenfield", which will permanently identify the Sansom Street entrance to the school (Sansom Street between 21st and 22nd Street). Greenfield students in grades 4 to 6 designed a letter and image in mosaic tiles, and Moore students led by Instructor Lynn Denton cemented and grouted the installation.

Moore and Greenfield students worked together for 8 weeks to complete the project.

A celebration was held on April 27 with parents and friends. Christine Carlson of the Home and School Association coordinated details with the school principal, Dan Lazar.
