Saving the Tile Mosaics

8/18/2023 6:18 pm

TILE MOSAICS PROJECT

 

If you visited the Hall of Philosophy this past summer, chances are you noticed that the beautiful, old tile mosaics on the floor are showing signs of wear.  The mosaics are some of our most treasured keepsakes and they've been a bit neglected over the last few years.  The Class of 2000 is spearheading a campaign to repair these works of art, restoring them to their original condition.

 

Not only is important to restore and care for the mosaics because they are priceless works of art, but also because they have become tripping hazards.  

The cost of such an undertaking is a little daunting.  Work will begin in the fall of 2023 with the mosaic you see above.  This is one of two that are in the worst shape and, therefore, will be repaired first.  

If you can help with the cost of these repairs, please click on the "Dues/Donate" button to the right on this page.  Click on "Dues and Donations" again, then scroll down to the "Donations" section and click on "Repairs for the tile mosaics in the Hall of Philosophy".  

You may also send a check.  Make it out to "AACLSC" and in the memo line write "mosaics".  Send it to AACLSC, PO Box 1034, Chautauqua, NY  14722.

These are tax deductible donations.  If you would like a letter for tax purposes, please send that request to alumassocexecsec@gmail.com.

 

Thank you for helping us save the mosaics!
