"Wheels" (2010) by Anne Marie Karlsen
 
DESCRIPTION:  approx. 50-foot by 50-foot ceramic tile mosaic
 
COMMENT:  Karlsen's inspiration for this mosaic is reported to be the Pacific Wheel that used to be on the Santa Monica pier.  According to Santa Monica Cultural Affairs, the mosaic "is meant to create the sort of whirling, topsy-turvy effect that one experiences on an amusement ride."
