Crafting Legacy Through Tile

In a landmark collaboration, Mercury Mosaics and MacArthur Foundation award-winner Dyani White Hawk joined forces to create "Nourish," a breathtaking mosaic art installation at the Whitney Museum of American Art's Studio Bar.

White Hawk's vision is brought to life in a masterpiece that tells a narrative of connectivity between earth and sky, inspired by the rich tradition of Lakota abstraction in beadwork, painting, and quillwork.
