Colorful Mosaic Art Brightens Johnson City Park
A neighborhood park in Johnson City is looking a bit brighter with the installation of mosaic art pieces.
Emily Jablon of Jablon Studios in Binghamton oversaw the public art project with a group of teens known as the "Mosaic Mafia."
Jablon worked with village officials to plan the mosaic pieces for Boland Park.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Jablon said the project features a "fish" theme - appropriate because the park is located along the Susquehanna River.
Jablon said the mosaic art has been placed on the front and back side of a park pavilion.
The project was done in cooperation with Broome-Tioga BOCES and Broome County Workforce.
The teens worked on the mosaic pieces at the Johnson City Municipal Building over a period of several weeks during the summer.
