About the Book
Softcover Edition | A book picturing the mosaic "Wall of Welcome" by artist Jean Graham and by neighbors in the Brentwood and Crestview neighborhoods in Austin, Texas. The entire wall is pictured, including a 100-foot mosaic mural and more than 200 smaller mosaic compositions by Graham and her neighbors. This book was photographed and designed by neighbor Barbara Lugge in 2009. All profits from this book will be donated to Violet Crown Community Works, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Austin, Texas, helping build and sustain community in Brentwood and Crestview by supporting neighborhood enhancement projects. The Wall of Welcome is the organization's first project.
