Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo Stands Tall in Long Beach, California

Dedication and patience are the keys to preservation, and our congratulatory salute is extended to Long Beach Heritage and the Port Authority of Long Beach whose negotiations achieved what appeared several years ago to be a pipe dream, namely the careful removal, tile by tile, of the magnificent, historically important mural that had adorned the Port Authority Administration Building for nearly 60 years. The building itself had been scheduled for imminent demolition.

Brian Worley Art & Restoration of Claremont, California tackled the job. Work commenced on September 26, 2018 with the careful marking of every tile, numbering each row and lettering each column consecutively, before the tiles were removed column by column.

Merola Tile, Sponsor of Monumental Mural, Holds Workshop!
On Friday, February 23, 2018, National Tile Day, the first of many Global Monumental Hand-Print Mural workshops was organized for the 90+ employees at Merola Tile in Manalapan, New Jersey. The full day event was organized by Katia McGuirk, mosaic artist, tile maker and THF board member who had this to report:
“The Merola Tile family is extraordinary! Diverse, kind, gracious, happy at work, loyal and eager to share their stories. All expressed and experienced the joy of creating! It was with joy in my heart that I touched and was touched by so many wonderful folks who loved their short/sweet conversation with clay. The Merola magic is real!”
