Bostik and Artaic Innovative Mosaic Host Mosaic Mural Design Competition

Bostik Inc., a manufacturer of specialty adhesives and installation systems for building construction materials, and Artaic Innovative Mosaic, creator of architecturally compelling mosaics using its patented American robotic production, have announced more news about their upcoming “Design ‘N Gather (DNG)” Mosaic Mural Design Competition.

According to Scott Banda, director of Marketing of Bostik’s Consumer and Construction Business Unit, “The winning one-of-a-kind mosaic masterpiece will be produced and then, permanently installed as a 20- by 8-foot backlit wall at Wet Republic, MGM Grand Las Vegas’ poolside bar and patio area. It will first be unveiled May 5 during HD Expo at Bostik’s Hospitality Pavilion at the “Party by the Pool, the exposition’s poolside celebration.

“There is still time to register,” Banda continues. “Already, some of the world’s top designers have submitted designs to portray our requested theme, which must depict the energy, life and essence of Las Vegas. In addition to the Grand Prize, which will be a free trip for two to Paris, the 10 top finalists will receive many terrific prizes, as well.”

Designs from the top 10 finalists will be on display at the “Bostik Gallery Lounge” at HD Expo ‘16, the premier hospitality design tradeshow held at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, May 4-6 of this year.

From there, the gallery of finalists will then move to AIA Convention 2016 in Philadelphia, May 19-21, a global architectural trade event, which features more than 170,000 square feet of booths, galleries and highly attended architectural continuing education credits (CEU) presentations. “The winners’ mosaic design work will be seen at both events, and highly publicized globally,” Banda states.
