Surfing Madonna

How It Began…

Mark Patterson (the artist) and Bob Nichols (President of Surfing Madonna Oceans Project) clandestinely installed the 10’x10′ glass mosaic underneath the train bridge on Encinitas Blvd and Hwy 101 dressed as construction workers in the middle of the afternoon on Friday, April 22, 2011.

What’s Going On?

Ocean Life Mosaic

The Ocean Life Mosaic, newly named as the “Pacific Playground” (8’x15′ seamless glass) will be permanently displayed at the newly constructed Marine Life Safety Center at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas at the end of Summer 2017!

Huge Thanks to Don Myers Stained Glass Studio for creating the mosaic, Peggy Zepeda for the design, to all the community members who helped with cutting, gluing and grinding the glass and all of the donors and supporters!

This piece of art will be complete with “Save the Ocean” down the side and a legend to identify our fragile marine life and habitat.
