Alviso & Alviso Mandalas

Artist: Donna Billick (2004)

This project was inspired by the rich natural landscape of Alviso including the wetlands of the National Wildlife Refuge, some of the last open space in the region. Working with the community, the artist created the artwork's three tile mosaic elements: Alviso, a bench in the form of a book that is standing on its side with images depicting indigenous plant life and the wetlands on its “covers”; and the two Alviso Mandalas, each 6’ in diameter. Together these elements create a visual welcome to the library and offer the community a place to pause and enjoy the setting.
