Tile Bar: Mosaic Man Hopes to Raise $80K

“Mosaic Man” Jim Power, last seen selling belt buckles and creating colorful mosaics for The Bean, Porchetta and other local businesses is turning his attention back to the light poles for which he’s best known. The local legend just launched an Indie GoGo campaign in hopes of raising $80,000, so he can restore poles that have been damaged over the years. Contribute $100 and you get your likeness on one of them; chip in $2,500 and you get your own pole.

Check out the promotional video, featuring Clayton Patterson’s early photos of Mr. Power; look closely and you’ll even see The Local’s light pole.
