The SCVTV production team is proud to announce that “Finding Art: ‘Circle Song’ Community Tile Wall” won a Silver award at the 44th Annual Telly Awards. 

The piece, which can be viewed here, follows the process of artist Katy Krantz, who was selected to design a ceramic tile wall mural, located at the new Canyon Country Community Center. The art piece, titled “Circle Song,” was inspired by the local natural landscape and the history of quilting. 

“It was a real pleasure following Katy and her fantastic crew during the whole process. She had this cool idea of handing out blocks of clay for hikers to imprint leaves, flowers, and anything they could find on the hike,” said Antonio Curiel, the lead producer of the “Finding Art: ‘Circle Song’ Community Tile Wall” segment. “After watching her collect clay, glaze the tiles, rearrange them in her studio, sticking them on the wall under the sun, it’s no surprise the City chose her for this project. Katy’s work ethic and connection with the ceramics is inspiring to say the least. The City is lucky to have this piece and I am fortunate that our amazing team was able to document Katy’s journey. I hope people will enjoy this tile wall for many years to come – thank you, Katy.”

The project included socially distanced community engagement programs that took place at Central Park, Elsmere Canyon trailhead, Towsley Canyon, and Discovery Park. Hikers were given blocks of wet clay to press into natural textures encountered on their self-guided hike. The clay impressions were collected and used within the tile mural’s design. A second community engagement program that included an online tile-making workshop, in partnership with the Education Department of the Fernandeño Tataviam of Mission Indians. The majority of the filming for this piece took place in 2021. 

“Our team passionately worked on this piece for months, meticulously documenting the process of the artist and her team from the initial community outreach through the reception,” said Jessica Boyer, Executive Director of SCVTV. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to share this story and for all the individuals and groups who participated. I’m immensely proud of all who contributed to the wall and this Finding Art segment.”

The piece was produced by Antonio Curiel, Jessica Boyer and Susan Shapiro. It was filmed by Curiel, Boyer, Shapiro, Patricia Silva, Elizabeth Medina, and Clara Ribot. Post production and music composition as done by Curiel. Engineering was done by Michael R. Mazzetti.
