16th Avenue: Where Mosaic Magic Kissed San Francisco!

San Francisco city is one of the most liberal and artistic cities of the United States. Visiting this lively cultural center of Northern California, you find yourself wandering amongst eclectic Victorian architecture and landmarks like the infamous Golden Gate Bridge & Alamo Square. This city is literally a mosaic, comprised of colourful yet different neighbourhoods, mimicking little tiles on an artisan’s mosaic canvas – each exhibiting its own intricate artistic detail. The “16th Avenue Tiled Steps” project is surely one of the most beautiful art gems of San Francisco city that has been manufactured by the hands of local art enthusiasts, volunteers and of course, by the two ambitious artists: Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher. Combining their artistic envision and skills with the passion of the community, mosaic staircase project was initiated in January 2003 and was successfully completed a year later in August of 2004.
