Newport Harbor High School Murals – Newport Beach CA

Description

These two mosaic murals made of unglazed colored body tile were “crafted from thousands of tiny tiles by Arthur Ames and his then-fiancee Jean Goodwin in 1937” (http://articles.latimes.com/2009/oct/14/local/me-murals14).

When the original building was torn down and rebuilt in 2007, these mosaic murals were saved and now rest in the wall of an entryway to the new building.
