Authors and Illustrators Tile Mural
During the 2017-2018 school year, Salem Hyde received a grant from the Syracuse City School District Educational Foundation for an interdisciplinary project entitled
Authors and Illustrators Tile Mural. Fifth grade students researched their favorite authors and illustrators in our school library and then created glazed ceramic tiles in art class. The tiles are student interpretations of illustrations from their chosen books. The mural, installed in the Salem Hyde library, was unveiled in a ceremony in June of 2018.
