Kew Gardens 100 Tile Project, with the theme of Kew Gardens as "home", was launched this week!

Kew Gardens Residents (and those who work in Kew Gardens), ages 5-105 years of age, are invited to reflect on Kew Gardens as their home and then create their vision on 4.5" x 4.5" tiles, which will then become part of an outdoor permanent installation in Kew Gardens for all to admire.

A committee of community enthusiasts applied to the Citizens Committee for New York City for a New Yorkers for Better Neighborhoods Grant and although competition was steep we were chosen as one of this year's recipients.
We are delighted that they recognized that the 100 Tile Project is a wonderful opportunity for residents of all ages and backgrounds to create something beautiful together!

Interested in painting a tile? You don’t have to be an artist to participate but you do have a picture in your heart of what Kew Gardens means to you as HOME (indoors, outdoors, home, school, business, family, etc) and be willing
to give the experience your best effort.

Tile Painting Day at The Potter’s Wheel is scheduled for Sunday, May 22nd, from 3:00-8:00pm and it will be necessary for you to schedule an appointment by May 15th. If you’d like to participate, please pick up an Application at The Potter’s Wheel which is conveniently located at 120-33 83rd Avenue in Kew Gardens, telephone (718) 441-6614, e-mail address: website:
