San Joaquin, Madera

Mosaics at San Joaquin, Madera, California, by Alberto Garcia-Alvarez. This project, of two years in duration, consisted of large mosaics in the apse behind and above the altar of the church, as well as a Via Crucis which progressed above head height around the nave. The book contains an overview of project (the artist’s recollections) by Alberto Garcia-Alvarez; a poem “The Stations in a Circle” by Michelle Chignell-Vuletic; and a photo tour of the mosaics of the Stations of the Cross (Via Crucis).
