In 2003, artists Betsy Kopshina Schulz and Pat Welsh, along with a team of volunteers, created a mosaic mural for the wall outside the Del Mar Public Library at 1309 Camino Del Mar. The mixed media mural combines sculpted ceramic elements with rocks and other found objects.
The mosaic’s motifs include local flora and fauna.
The library building resembles a large house, and the intimate scale of the mural elements fits perfectly into this context.
The design continues alongside the stairs leading to the front door.
