Arc Creates Huge Mosaic Mural to Highlight the Need for Greater Respect of People with Disabilities

This mural project began in March of 2013 and is the result of an idea that took root over three years ago with the goal of promoting dignity and respect for individuals with developmental disabilities. The Arc’s campaign has taken a giant leap into public awareness with this “National Wall of Respect.” It is the latest effort in The Arc’s “Value of One” initiative that uses positive narratives and imagery to show that every life has value and people with developmental disabilities deserve full citizenship .

Her art is mainly inspired by Mexican Folk Art, which is reflected in her current Dia de los Muertos collection. Erin was also recently commissioned by the City of Riverside to create several mosaic art pieces. Erin’s parents, Cathy and Greg Maxwell, are also mosaic artists and taught their daughter well.

The National Wall of Respect mosaic mural will measure eight feet in height by forty feet in length and will include approximately 50,000 separate mosaic pieces when comple
