Build a wide and diverse community of mosaic makers and lovers of all ages and abilities. By building this community we will preserve the tradition and skills of mosaics, build respect for mosaic as and art form, and push the boundaries of innovation through contemporary mosaics.
The Mosaic Society of Philadelphia (MSoP) began as a conversation during the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) Conference in Austin, Texas in 2011. A group of dedicated mosaicists and mosaic lovers dreamed of a forum for mosaic artists in the Philadelphia area. Their dream became a reality and we had our first meeting in June 2011. This small group evolved into the Board of Directors and soon after became a
501(c)(3) non-profit. The Society has since grown in membership, developed an active
Facebook page for information sharing, hosted workshops with nationally renowned
artists and was the host city for SAMA 2015 conference right here in Philadelphia! We
have meeting every other month Starting in September and during that time have
educational components, a mini-salon to share our artwork, an Artist Trading Card
exchange and so much more. We are excited about the fantastic growth that has
occurred so quickly and are pleased that so many friendships have been created within
this wonderful creative community.
