Located on the playground of PS/IS 89, the colors and patterns of the mosaic panels are based upon characters of children's stories- the blue and white checkered dress of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, the black jumper of Eloise, the red and white of Cat in the Hat, the pink striped belly of Piglet and others. Parents and children alike have read these stories countless times and consciously (or unconsciously) the colors and patterns of these characters have become etched into their imaginations. The abstract designs become illustrations on a large and exaggerated scale full of mystery, exuberance and playfulness.The stories are - Cat In the Hat, Little Prince, Bert, Dorothy, Piglet, Eloise, Harry
