A MOSAIC created by users of Acomb Explore has been put on display to the public.

The mosaic was created by the library's users during a community arts festival, with 10 visitors aged between two and 72 taking part.

The artwork was finished at the Acomb Dance And Music (ADAM) Festival in July this year, when residents were invited to help place the last few tiles, and has been hung in the library's garden.

Rachel Benn, Explore supervisor, said: "We wanted something to encourage even more users out into the garden. It’s a great space: sheltered and beautiful, which adds even more to our library’s offer and which many groups use to great effect. This is another fantastic asset for the garden and I’m very grateful to all those who have contributed to it."

Donna Taylor, family learning tutor who led the project, said: "The design itself is based on an oak tree – the old name for Acomb being ‘Acum’ which means Place of the Oaks. We also wanted an organic, flowing feel to the design as it is to be displayed within the garden. Plus, of course, we wanted something brightly coloured and textural."

The mosaic is part of a year-long community art project run by City of York Council’s York Learning, funded by Explore York Libraries and Archives Mutual Ltd, and the library's garden was developed into a sensory space with help from Greenshoots, a group of visually-impaired people.
