Mosaics at Mirebalais Hospital Phase One Update
My name is Laurel True and I am a professional artist and educator. I have specialized in public, architectural and community-based mosaic projects for the last 20 years.
Over the last year, I have been working with Partners In Health to raise funds to bring mosaic artwork to the walls, pavements and courtyards of Mirebalais Hospital, a state-of-the-art teaching hospital being built by Partners In Health, set to open its doors later this year.
In 2011, through grass-roots, community-driven fundraising, we successfully funded and created three architectural ceramic tile mosaic projects for Mirebalais Hospital with the help of Haitian tradespeople and artists.
We were able to fund and create these Phase One mosaic projects with the help of donors like you.
