A community-inspired, mixed-media mosaic mural is being installed this weekend in Grier Heights at Thompson Family Services Center.

The center is asking the community to come out and take part in the installation of the 170-square-foot mosaic mural, which is designed to reflect the healing journey of the many children and families throughout the Carolinas for which Thompson provides clinical and prevention services.

The mural, designed by ceramic artist Leslie Scott, will consist of more than 7,000 pieces of broken tile, mirror and ceramics made by members of the Grier Heights community along with the staff, clients and supporters of Thompson who have been working on the project since early October.  

The three-day assembly will take place Nov. 15 from 3:30-5 p.m., Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Volunteers may sign up online at www.ThompsonNCFF.org.

Last year, Thompson served more than 16,000 children and families providing developmental education, clinical and behavioral treatment and other therapeutic services from its four campuses across North and South Carolina. The Grier Heights location opened in October and will serve more than 1,000 children and families. The campus is located at 769 N. Wendover Road.
