Thank you!
The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps, a beautiful mosaic running up 163 steps. Inspired by the world-famous steps in Rio de Janeiro, Irish ceramist Aileen Barr and mosaic artist Colette Crutcher joined forces, working with over 300 community volunteers for over a two and a half year period until they unveiled the project in August 2005. The names of over 220 sponsors were actually woven into the sweeping sea-to-sky design and, amazingly, over 2,000 handmade tiles and 75,000 fragments of tile, mirror and stained glass went into the finished piece. There were a total of 163 separate mosaic panels created, one for each step riser.

  2. 2. The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps ProjectPerhaps the world’s longest mosaic staircase was conceived and fabricated by Irishceramicist Aileen Barr and San Francisco mosaic artist Colette Crutcher.Over a two and a half year period, a tireless group of neighbors raised funds andlobbied City government to make the project, unveiled in August 2005, a reality.Artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher led the creation of the 163 mosaic panelsthat were applied to the step risers, over 300 neighbors joined us in making them,and over 220 neighbors sponsored handmade animal, bird and fish name tilesimbedded within the mosaic. The City permitting process was completed on August18, 2004. KZ Tile, a major San Francisco tile setting company, generously agreed toset the mosaic panels into the risers and tile the step treads with rough, nonslip tile.We completed the installation of the Project in August 2005, with the exception of thecaulking, which will be done in early September 2005.As you can see, the result is simply amazing! The beautiful pictures were taken byvarious flickr users.The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps project has been a neighborhood effort to create abeautiful mosaic running up the risers of the 163 steps located at 16th and Moragain San Francisco. Sponsored by the San Francisco Parks Trust, artists Aileen Barr andColette Crutcher started working on the project in January of 2003. The mosaicstaircase was completed on August 18, 2004 with the help of over 300 neighbors, andover 220 neighbors who sponsored handmade animal, bird and fish name tiles.
