Weekend events: Mosaic unveiling, jazz organist, artists’ reception

Wichita artist Steve Murillo’s 3,000-pound ceramic mosaic, commissioned by Abode Venue owners Bill and Colleen Jackson, will be unveiled on Friday as part of Final Friday. The piece, which will be a new permanent public art installment on the Douglas-facing wall of Abode, 1330 E. Douglas, has a music theme and took Murillo and Margi Sweeton eight months to complete. It’s made of more than 25,000 bits of glass stone and ceramic tile and is 12 by 18 feet. Murillo and his crew have been installing the mural, which came out of his studio in 88 large pieces, over the past several weeks.
