Issaquah Alps Trails Club
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of The Issaquah Alps Trails Club, Cheryl Smith Mosaics set out to gather the community together to create a 3’x4’ recycled glass mosaic of the Issaquah Alps. Inspired by environmental watercolorist Claire Giordano of Claire’s Wanderings, Cheryl transformed Claire’s design into a striking mosaic made by 300 community members.
IATC’s mission is to engage the public to preserve, protect, and promote the land, wildlife, and trails of the Issaquah Alps for present and future generations. Through the mosaic project, environmental awareness was spread through the community participation and permanent installation.
