Harmony project mosaics taking shape

The project is expected to be installed in Ashcroft in spring 2018.

The New Pathways to Gold Society (NPTGS) board of directors were given a view of the mosaic artwork for the Harmony Project in Ashcroft on October 19. This joint initiative of the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Rotary Club and the Ashcroft and District Lions Club will see the construction and installation of the World Harmony Mosaic: a large piece of public mosaic art and the accompanying Peace Bell in a covered structure in Ashcroft.

The New Pathways to Gold Society has contributed $14,000 toward the project. The directors were very impressed by the unique original artwork being produced, and look forward to the project’s completion in spring 2018.
