About

Welcome! We are mosaic artists who make public art that is rooted in community and social justice. We are a Black-owned and Native-Owned art studio, owned by lead artist, Lori Greene. We create art as a way to connect and heal, and we need support with our work and projects.

We are located in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and we were created 16 years ago. Our mission is to create artwork that is deeply intertwined with our community by recognizing and celebrating the diversity and cultures who call Minnesota home, and to provide access and opportunities for anyone to practice creativity. At Mosaic On A Stick we celebrate, honor, and engage with voices of marginalized people and maintain our values as an art studio that aims to be socially responsible while providing art for everyone to appreciate. Inclusivity is one of our core values, and we believe it is important to increase opportunities for art-making for people who may not be able to afford art classes due to classism, racism, and other systematic barriers. A mosaic is a work of art that is created out of broken pieces to create something new and beautiful. Like mosaic, our communities are made of many different and individual pieces that when built with intentionality and care, we unify to create a larger whole. We believe that diversity and interconnectedness, and creativity are vital for our well-being as a community and society.

To practice these values in our work, we choose to focus our goals on increasing accessibility and opportunities for genuine collaboration at every level. As both artists and entrepreneurs we strive for radical and progressive approaches to inclusivity in art by providing:
  • Affordable art and artistic instruction in mosaic work
  • Community projects open for general public participation
  • Sliding-scale classes
  • Opportunities for collaborative projects

In order to sustain these values and achieve our goals to provide art for everyone, we need help to support these projects.

Many times, the money to buy the materials for our collaborative projects comes out of our own pockets, the time and labor it takes to work on these projects is unpaid, and many of the people who help us are volunteers. YES we do love doing this work! And creating mosaics especially with and for the community is always a labor of love, and of great joy. However, in order to sustain the work we do we need support from our patrons to keep our momentum going, as well as to make more art!

Your support will help us:
  • Buy materials to make more art!
  • Pay our artists!!!
  • Make more art to share with our community

As a patron, you will receive access to our behind the scenes work, insight to our creative process, work in progress, AND opportunity to be a part of our collaborative projects.

So welcome! Come be a part of our mosaic journey. Art is CONNECTION as much as it is beauty and expression and we would love for you to join us, and support us in our creative process as the adventures unfold!

Big Love.
