Mo­saic com­pleted at Record Ob­server

CENTREVILLE — Piece by piece, day by day, Queen Anne’s County young­sters paired with Tal­bot County artist Jen Wag­ner to cre­ate a col­or­ful mo­saic in Centreville. For two weeks, rain and shine, cam­pers with the Queen Anne’s County Fam­ily YMCA Camp Gun­ston broke, placed and se­cured each piece of glass onto the wall of the Record Ob­server of­fice fac­ing Dis­trict Court off of Broad­way.

The mo­saic’s shape is in the form of the Amer­i­can Flag. Re­plac­ing the stars in the top left cor­ner is the front page of an old

Record Ob­server news­pa­per. Though the head­lines didn’t oc­cur in the same is­sue, or even the same year, two ma­jor events are de­picted: the open­ing of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Bridge and the un­veil­ing of the Queen Anne statue in Centreville by Princess Anne.

On the out­skirts of the flag, blue and sil­ver stars sur­round phrases like, “Free­dom of Speech” and “Free­dom of Re­li­gion.”

Last sum­mer, Wag­ner and other cam­pers com­pleted a mo­saic on the side of Cal­la­han’s Laun­dry de­pict­ing life on the Eastern Shore.

This year Pub­lisher David Fike and Ed­i­tor An­gela Price vol­un­teered the wall of the news­pa­per of­fice, and APG Me­dia of Ch­e­sa­peake helped spon­sor the project. The Record Ob­server is the old­est pa­per in the county and the news­pa­per of record.

Wag­ner has cre­ated more than 40 mo­saics through­out the East Coast. For more in­for­ma­tion about her work, visit www. jen­wag­n­er­mo­saics.com.
