16th Avenue Tiled Step Project

The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps project is a wonderful display of community effort and artistic vision. 163 steps are tiled with mosaic panels set into the risers which were designed by artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher. Over 300 neighbors helped in the making of the panels with over 220 neighbors sponsoring handmade animal, bird, and fish name tiles which are imbedded within the mosaics. KZ Tile, a major San Franciscan tile-setting company generously agreed to set the mosaic panels into the risers and to tile the step treads with rough, nonslip tile.

The extreme close-ups of tarantulas’ “paws” show fine, colourful hairs, and sharp claws. Here: Brachypelma albopilosum, foot detail. (Photo by Michael Pankratz/Caters News Agency)

Blacksmith Johann Schmidberger works on a suit of armour for the Vatican's Swiss Guards at his workshop in Molln, Austria, March 29, 2017. Austrian blacksmiths who produce ceremonial suits of armour for the Vatican's Swiss Guards are close to the end of their current deal to do so, and say supplying the suits will not now be an issue for many years to come. One of the drawbacks of the Swiss Guards' medieval uniforms is that the craftsmanship needed to make them is disappearing. (Photo by Leonhard Foeger/Reuters)
