Mariners Inn consumers and students from Wayne State University used dominos to create a mosaic of President Obama. The theme of the project is “Yes We Can”. The men picked this theme because they have learned that they can work to achieve success, overcome addiction, be productive, and lead the lives they want to lead.
The students from Wayne State University are taking an honors and graduate-level service learning course called Art as a Social Practice. To fulfill the course requirements, students spend at least 25 hours in the community helping individuals in institutional, educational, and similar settings with art projects. The completed mosaic will measure 44”x77” and will travel to community events and local corporations.
Mariners Inn would like to thank Wayne State University for their ongoing support of our art initiatives. Thank you to the students for sharing their time, talent, and expertise with our men.
