The Tile Heritage Foundation has issued an open invitation for you to leave your imprint on tile for the Donor Wall for Posterity at Coverings™ 2018, Atlanta, GA  – May 8-11, 2018.  Participate in the Global Monumental Hand-Print Mural.

The concept is to create a “monumental tile mural” honoring everyone with his or her “hand” in the tile industry today. All imprints will be part of this historic tile installation for posterity – it’s a FUN project!

Over the next 12 to 15 months Tile Heritage is seeking 5,000 hand-print tiles from participants from every aspect of the tile industry. All are invited to press their hands, names, thoughts or logos into a wet clay tile and become a part of the mural.

Sponsorship of this project is most welcome. There are many ways to assist and be publicly acknowledged as a Mural Sponsor during the Coverings Expo in 2018. View details.

The Monumental Hand-Print Mural will be installed at Tile Council of North America headquarters in Anderson, S.C., to honor all who contribute and participate in the tile industry today.
