ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Mauricio Robalino's vibrant, tactile mosaic Riverview shows animals, plants, and scenery inspired by stories from the school's local area near the Snohomish River, Northwest Washington. The mosaic includes a killdeer that was nesting in the school's wetland garden and a local rooster known for crowing at all hours of the day. You can also find a dragonfly, the state insect, and a pair of goldfinch birds, the state bird. In the scene's clouds, you can find a reference to the fable of the tortoise and the hare. Riverview is a two-part artwork comprised of this mosaic artwork and a school bell sculpture above it.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Snohomish School District.
