FALLBROOK – After many months of planning, the latest piece of permanent art for the new Fallbrook Library has been installed.

A request for proposal was issued last spring for an art installation to go on the floor of the Poet’s Patio. The winning bidder was Robin Vojak, a long time resident of Fallbrook.

Vojak proposed installing a stoneware ceramic floor mural. The sophisticated contemporary feeling of the library architecture and existing artwork and sculpture inspired her design, "The Art of Knowledge."

The tile used for the floor mural is a high-fire stoneware clay body and will therefore be very dense and durable. The tiles are rusty brown, golden yellow, aqua greens and blues, and include cast bronze pieces. The colors replicate nature as well as complement the building and other permanent artwork. The glazes used on the tiles are a combination of matte and gloss finishes and will have a slight texture. The concrete border of the floor mural will be stained using a color that complements the tiles.

 The project, funded by the Friends of the Fallbrook Library and approved by the County of San Diego, was designed to enhance the donor names on the Poet’s Patio floor. Research into the best way to enhance the donor name lettering is still being done. At some point in the future, it is feasible that other areas of the Poet’s Patio floor could have additional floor murals.

 Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Rd.
