Memorial stones

Karen Edlund, a friend, neighbor, mentor and founding board member of the New England Mosaic Society, was a powerhouse in the world of public health and reproductive health, community organizing and community building.  She meant so much to so many people.  After Karen passed away, we led a project for New England Mosaic Society members and friends of Karen’s to turn the street where she lived into a mosaic path, with colorful mosaic stones and pavers made in Karen’s memory placed at the bases of the city trees all along the street.  32 people made mosaic stones using frost-proof materials.  A map listing the many artists and the locations of the pieces is placed in front of her house.  These memorials are meant to be meaningful to those who knew her and to also adding beauty for everyone else who walks by.
