Compass Rose

Unveiled in July of 2014, Compass Rose is a 4 ft by 3 ft. glazed ceramic mosaic situated in the geographic center of San Antonio. Located on the eastern side of the River Walk across from Main Plaza and San Fernando Cathedral, the artwork serves as the starting point in a system of mile markers extending south along the Mission Reach part of the river. Zoe Palacios, a MOSAIC student, drew the original design for the Compass Rose and also served as the lead artist.
