George W. Nebinger Elementary School, 2013

George W. Nebinger School serves students in the Queen Village and Bella Vista neighborhoods, where PMG is also located, but has no dedicated visual arts teacher. Tile & Grout allowed students in the autistic support program and eighth graders to work on an outdoor mosaic at the school building at 6th & Carpenter Streets. This project focused on the Delaware River Estuary in conjunction with a larger project that is adding green features to the school.
