Colette Crutcher and Aileen Barr designed and fabricated the decorative tiles, with input from the community, and contributions from youth and adults at tile-making workshops held at the Willie Mays Boys & Girls Club. The design is based on decorative patterns drawn from various cultures, including Adinkra cloth from Ghana, Native American painted pottery, woven pattern from Central America, Japanese and Indonesian fabrics, paisley designs from India and Middle Eastern tile patterns.
