Midland Mosaics

Midland Mosaics no longer allows people in the yard or to tour the sculptures. I brought both my boys there when they were 10 in the 90s, took my daughter today and they said no. I even offered a $20 donation.

Giant Front Yard Mosaic Sculptures

Giant Mosaic Sculptures just south of Tacoma in Midland by artist Jack Lewis. You can't see them all from the road... but if you're nice and he's home he might show them to you...
