The North Creek Mosaic Project
Ten years ago, artist Kate Hartley saw the large concrete wall on Main Street in North Creek as the perfect canvas for a very unique, very large-scale art project.

Today, that 180-foot stretch of bland, concrete wall is one of the largest pieces of public art in the North Country in what has been a community wide art participation program, with a generation of kids volunteering for the project.
