Global Good Impact is proud to be working withS Santa Barbara mosaic artist Betsy Gallery on a large scale public mosaic project, Santa Barbara Timeline Mosaic. This mosaic will be approximately 5 feet tall by 50 feet long with each panel highlighting a different aspect of Santa Barbara’s History.  The project is modeled after London’s Queenhithe Dock Mosaic.

The Santa Barbara Timeline Mosaic will be built in collaboration with local historians and our city’s diverse residents via community workshops and expansive community input over a 2-3 year process. The Santa Barbara Timeline mosaic will be built to last hundreds
of years, for generations of residents and visitors alike to learn about our city’s history.

When complete the public will be able to enjoy public art mosaic that highlights 150 million years of Santa Barbara County’s unique history in 50 feet of mosaic!

We are currently in the process of seeking an appropriate site for the project to be installed publicly. If you have a location that would be good fit, please email Project Manager, Robin Elander at globalgoodimpact@gmail.com.

To jump start this process the local project team collaborated with the London School of Mosaic, a division of Southbank Mosaics, creator of the Queenhithe Dock mosaic, to offer a local Certificate Design Class in Large-Scale Public Mosaics at the Menelli Trading Company. The London team advanced the skills of local emerging artists as well as introduced large-scale community based mural design theory and practice to those in related professions, such as designers, architects and builders. Our 22 participants created a unique mosaic piece to take home!
