Behind the Mosaic Podcast: Episode 3 – Meagan Corrado
Behind the Mosaic is a series of audio studio visits with some of the most inspirational people in the mosaic art community. It is designed to provide an additional mode of connection between artists, mosaicists, collectors, and enthusiasts of all levels of engagement with mosaic art.
We hope to extend those connections by exploring the opportunities for mosaic makers to connect their work with communities, institutions and professional disciplines outside of our mosaic centric world.
This weeks guest is beautifully rooted in two disciplines and has forged her own path of connection between her calling as an artist and devotion to social work. Episode 3 features, Dr. Meagan Corrado.

About the Behind the Mosaic Podcast Series
The Society of American Mosaic Artists is a nonprofit that is dedicated to educating, inspiring, and promoting excellence in mosaic arts. We have produced publications, exhibitions, and conferences which include educational experiences and public service projects for over 17 years.
In that time, we have seen incredible growth in the awareness of mosaic as an art medium and even more so, an evolution of the medium itself in the hands of North American artists. Our newest program offering is a Podcast available to the public to further SAMA’s mission through discussion of sustainable mosaic technique, the creative process, and the diverse applications of the medium. A resource intended for artists, mosaicists, collectors, and enthusiasts of all kinds. Behind the Mosaic is a series of audio studio visits with the most inspirational people in the mosaic art community, hosted by SAMA Executive Director, Dawnmarie Zimmerman.
