Stacia Goodman’s Mosaics Will Be Appearing in St. Louis Park’s First Community Art Show

Pictured above is Goodman’s pieces titled YoYo Landscape.

Goodman recently installed her first exterior mosaic in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis, the colorful origami bird pictured below.

The St. Louis Park Community Art Exhibit, organized by St. Louis Park Friends of the Arts,  will showcase the artisans and creators of the St. Louis Park area for the first time on a large scale.

One of these artisans is Stacia Goodman of Stacia Goodman Mosaics, an accomplished mosaic artist whose work adorns many places from the St. Louis Park Rec Center to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. She began her journey 15 years ago after taking one mosaic making class, and ever since she’s been hooked.

“I’m a strong advocate for upcycling objects,” Goodman says of her work. One example is her driftwood mosaics, assembled from material she pulls from dumpsters and trash sites. “I’ll make it happen in some way,” she says. “I’m all about second chances. And third chances.”

Goodman has received the St. Louis Park Arts and Culture grant twice, and although she lives in Minneapolis, she spends a lot of time in St. Louis Park. “I’m looking forward to making more connections in St. Louis Park,” she says. “I’m always looking to network with other artists so that we can follow and support each other’s work.”

More of Goodman’s work can be seen at the St. Louis Park Community Art Exhibit with an opening reception on October 12 from 5-9 p.m. at Jean Stephen Galleries.
