The Flood and the Clarifier Project

Happy New Year. I welcome a new year like never before. 2014 is the year of rebuilding, of recreating,or perhaps the word is, “reassembling” the community. Though some of us are displaced and working steadily to put our lives back, the Clarifier Project is firm and virtually untouched by the devastating flood that came through Lyons, Colorado on September, 13, 14 and 15, 2013. The ground around the project was washed away revealing cement structures that were part of the former waste water treatment facility. Ground can be put back. The project will move forward and find it’s beautiful completion in the wake of the flood. Thank you for your participation and vision. See you in 2014!

July 17, 2013

This was a particularly good day at the Clarifier Project. Several stalwart participants showed up in the hot sun. We put up the tent and it made working much more comfortable, (that, and the plunge in the river). We are now focusing on the “sky” sections of the project. In contrast to the chipper intensity of the mosaic we are loading up the sky with unbroken tile set on a grid, of sorts. It is a good effect.

We are still looking for blue porcelain tile and yet the sections of sky are filling up fast. It is fun to see the progress speed up a little!!

Come by and visit and/or participate Wednesday afternoons, from 5 – 7 and Sunday Mornings from 10 – noon!!  Now is the time!!!

We have also created a “make a donation” button on this website. You can read all about it on the “make a donation” page.

Have fun – Make community through Art!!

Community Work Events 2 days a week!!

The community, far and wide, is invited to participate in this monumental collaboration. Anytime during our work events participate by either putting one tile on the project or stay for 2 hours and get dirty: mix grout, mix thinset, mosaic and tile, haul water from the river and help clean up. Your participation brings the project to life!!

Sundays:  10 am – Noon

Wednesdays:  5 pm – 7 pm

Come by and visit!!
