Science and Technology Building, Lamar University, Beaumont, TX

And We Waltz With Water is a mosaic mural created for Lamar University’s new Science & Technology Building. Because the classes taught in the new building will relate to biology, the mosaic incorporates water, air, plants, and shows the relationship between the three on a microscopic level. The 24’ high by 12’ wide mosaic depicts Texas wetlands with lily pads afloat on rippling water.
