Remembering Those We Lost

Remembering Those We Lost

 

Local mosaic artist Jaying Wang has been working as Artist in Residence at Otis Elementary recently, collaborating with all 600 students at the school to create a mosaic wall mural of a cherry blossom tree.  

The finished mural will be mounted on an exterior wall of the school and dedicated to Rachel Shahinian and Annika Zinsley, mother and daughter, who died in a car accident last August. Annika would have been been a fifth-grader at Otis this year. 

Pictured here are two of the students working to assemble the mosaic prior to its installation. Wang is the owner of Artistic Home Paint and Glass Studio on Park Street. The school is located at 3010 Fillmore St.
