"Beach Scenes" (c. 1970) by Millard Sheets and Sheets Studio 
 
(originally untitled)
 
DESCRIPTION:  16-foot by 40-foot building-mounted ceramic and glass mosaic
COMMENT:  This mosaic is notable for its size, popular subject, and full signature of Millard Sheets.  It was one of the largest Home Savings and Loan branch mosaics, made with significant contribution from Nancy Colbath.  It remains one of the most popular of the Sheets Studio mosaics (notable for the bikini-clad girl), despite not being highly regarded by either Sheets or Colbath (Arenson, 2018).
