The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps Project

We’ve already shared some pictures of this gorgeous mosaic staircase on our facebook page two weeks ago, and I’ve almost forgot to post it here on our website.

The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps project has been a neighborhood effort to create a beautiful mosaic running up the risers of the 163 steps located at 16th and Moraga in San Francisco. Sponsored by the San Francisco Parks Trust, artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher started working on the project in January of 2003. The mosaic staircase was completed on August 18, 2004 with the help of over 300 neighbors, and over 220 neighbors who sponsored handmade animal, bird and fish name tiles.

As you can see, the result is simply amazing! The beautiful pictures below were taken by various flickr users.
