Description

MOSAIC was founded by Michael Tierney and Dan Terris and launched at South Boston High School in 1980 in response to the desegregation of Boston public schools in the 1970s. A yearly publication was published from 1980 to 1988. Additionally, exhibitions of their photographs were displayed in locations around the city. In 1989 a traveling exhibition by the students was created, being first shown at the Boston Public Library.
