A reception celebrating the magnificence of the mosaic gracing the Breuder Advanced Technology & Health Sciences Center was hosted Friday evening by the mosaic’s creator, David A. Stabley, instructor of ceramics and wood sculpture. Art supporters, friends and family from Williamsport, as well as the Bloomsburg, Danville and Lancaster areas, gathered in the building’s atrium. For some, it was their first visit to Penn College and “they were very impressed with the campus,” Stabley reports. The abstract mosaic, designed to complement the atrium’s angles as well as the sunlight that streams into the space, was installed during the summers of 2017 and 2018. Stabley estimates installation took about 350 hours. The ATHS mosaic is the artist’s third large-scale mosaic created on Penn College’s main campus. He will begin one in downtown Williamsport in the spring.
