 I received a forwarded email from Mt. San Antonio College (MT. SAC) about a series of tile murals based on Karl Benjamin's work.

Here is a copy of the announcement from the Mt. SAC art Dept:

Karl Benjamin Triangle Series Mosaics at the Mt. San Antonio College Art Department. The installation had the enthusiastic blessing of Karl, as he donated the images, spent hours designing and considering the options.

The second exhibit is,"Inye Wokoma: This Is...
