Beautiful Public Tile Art at Alpine Library, Alpine CA
Completed in April 2016 by Betsy Schulz of Del Mar CA

Located in Alpine, California, the sculpted ceramic art pieces created for the Alpine Library celebrate the community's natural environment and history. The art consists of one 2-1/2' tall x 15' long piece, and eight circles ranging from 1' to 3' in diameter. Betsy worked closely with the Friends of the Alpine Library and the Alpine Historical Society to gather information for the project.
