MAM Donates Mural to Children's Hospital of Michigan

Eighteen MAM artists contributed to this beautiful collective mosaic donated to Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit. Each artist created an 11-inch square mosaic from a design selected from over 100 drawings submitted in a contest by elementary students in the Lake Orion school district.
To complement the train theme on the pre-op floor, children were asked to create a drawing based on the short poem "Sitting on a train, Happy as can be, Looking out a window, What do I see?" Artists then chose their designs from the children's colorful landscapes, seascapes, skylines, farmyards, fields, and deserts, and many other interpretations. A muralist painted the wall with a train scene where the mosaics are installed as three large paned windows of the train.

The mural was donated in June, 2008.
