More photos of the Tiled Bench Project at Peralta Park

At the time, I had very little idea of what was involved in plastering the concrete barricade with the tiles.  It was a lot of work, and took a lot of precision planning and a creative vision, especially on the part of Susan Steinman and Andree Singer Thompson, the project artists.

Over the holidays, I finally got around to finding my negatives from eight years ago to document this project here. I am still looking for the photos that I took of the classroom session with the kids making the tiles.  I know they are somewhere…

Whenever I drive by Peralta Park on my way downtown, I try to catch a glimpse of the bench and the playground.  From what I can tell, it’s still lookin’ pretty good, I must say.  After looking at these pictures though, I think I will go and rub that tile that imagines a potion in the Future, that will let you “live forever, even if ur 1,000,000 years old, u won’t feel old!”
