No. 10 Embrace the World, One Heart at a Time

Design: David Chidgey, San Antonio, TX

Cut marble, stained glass, 2021

This mosaic is a series of hearts made out of art glass that stand above the contrasting, cut marble background. The top and bottom sections are stained glass. I used glass painting for lettering. My contribution was inspired by art created by kindergartners at the Community Day School Kindergarten that was installed around the Tree of Life Synagogue. It was a series of colorful, painted hearts row on top of row. Below them was a title, “Embrace the world one heart at a time.” My hope is that those who see this work will read those words and be as profoundly touched as I have been.
