Diversity Mural in Shelton

Item details

During my 4th year working with students at Choice High School in Shelton, WA, we launched the first version of the Diversity Mural: a wall of mosaic hearts made by students, local and regional community, and by mosaic artists all across the U.S., plus Scotland, Australia and Canada. It was installed during spring of 2018 and will be completed by fall. There is a silhouetted figure blowing kisses, which are hearts, and those float away forming a large rainbow. Student Evelyn Gaitan designed and painted the silhouetted figure, along with another placed on the far side of the mural, holding a butterfly net.

Meet the Creator

Custom mosaic accents for private, corporate and public spaces.

Jennifer Kuhns has been creating mosaic for 20 years. Working primarily with stained glass, carefully shaping each piece, she creates custom mosaic for private, corporate and public spaces all over the U.S., including sidewalk inlays, wall murals, window treatments and other architectural elements. Jennifer has honed methods of fabricating commissions in her rural studio that can be easily transported to another location for quick installation.

The style and techniques in Jennifer’s mosaic range from naturalistic and photorealistic to wildly colorful and stylized, but it is generally characterized by precision cutting of materials and careful placement resulting in smooth lines and strategic use of texture and reflectivity. Jennifer’s goal is to create works of art that have function and integrity, and that convey a sense of serenity and optimism in otherwise utilitarian spaces.
