In 2005 Angela Carlson Talle mosaiced a chimney at the Lao Market on University Avenue in St. Paul. Three years later it’s now the Bangkok Thai Supermarket and Minnesota winters have done a number on the mosaic tile. In 2008 Talle restored the work, fixing many of the broken and missing tiles and giving the chimeny a thorough spurcing up.

The detail and general color and surprise of a mosaic piece like this is cool, offering pedestrians and shoppers much more than the usual dull building. It’s the kind of work that invites closer inspection.
