CREATIA

 

Labyrinth, an ancient archetype for self-discovery, is the central theme of Adam’s proposed installation. Creatia pays homage to the spirit of the City of Houston as a dynamic, multi-cultural, urban metropolis and the anchor for space exploration in the US. Labyrinths of various designs and patterns are layered amongst each other like planets orbiting across the universe.

 

The ceramic, porcelain, china and glass tiles where contributed to the artist by residents of Houston making this mosaic mural a community art project.  Easily viewed from within the George R. Brown Convention Center, the 16'H x 5'L mosaic mural will engage the viewer on a visceral and cerebral level.

I AM JESSE OWENS
 

In honor of the legacy of Olympiad legend, Jesse Owens, students from A+ Unlimited Potential designed and painted  a mural as a tribute to Jesse Owens’ achievement of winning four gold medals at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.

 

Under the tutelage of award-winning public artist Reginald Adams, the 40 students researched the life of Owens’ and created the 8'tall by 40' long painted mural, which is displayed on the wall of the nationally-renowned the breakfast klub, located 3711 Travis, Houston, TX 77002

 

Sharpstown High School SSQ Labyrinth

Title: Oasis
Location: 8330 Triola
Medium: Mosaic benches and painted labyrinth
Client: Boniuk Institute
Dimension: vary
Date: March 2015

Historic Freedmen's Town Labyrinth

Title: Heart of Serenity
Location: 1407 Valentine @ Ruthven
Medium: Mosaic benches, 
Client: Boniuk Institute
Dimension: 10,000 square feet
Date: June 2014

Description: The Historic Freedmen’s Town Labyrinth was created in the center of the Mt Carmel MB Church Prayer Garden through the collaborative efforts of more than 150 volunteers including students from the Boniuk Institute’s Sacred Sites Quest 4, the creative genius of Reginald Adams LLC, and the guidance of labyrinth coach Jay Stailey. The project was completed in the spring of 2014 and dedicated on June 7, 2014.

 

The design chosen for this labyrinth is a replica of the eleven circuit medieval labyrinth found on the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France. The term “circuit” refers to the number of times the path goes around the center. The outside circuit of this particular labyrinth has been diverted at each of the four corners to create a “bastion” or “ear” to the Chartres design. A mosaic designed “Heart of Serenity” bench created by the Sacred Sites Quest students has been placed within each bastion to provide a place for pilgrims to sit, reflect and/or meditate.

 

Labyrinths are used to quiet the mind, to encourage meditation and self-reflection, and to reduce stress. They are open to all people as a non-denominational, cross-cultural blueprint for well-being.
