Bethany, Conn.—Laticrete has announced a joint auction with CTDA, NTCA, TCAA and TCNA for 12 world-class mosaic pieces to be held at the 2013 Total Solutions Plus (TSP) event in Bonita Springs, Fla., in October. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to the CTEF and the TCAA scholarship fund.This is one of the 12 world-class mosaic pieces that will be auctioned off at the 2013 Total Solutions Plus (TSP) event in Bonita Springs, Fla., next month.
Laticrete commissioned the 12 pieces from industry mosaic artists to display their work at the company’s Surfaces 2013 exhibit earlier this year, in support of communicating the 10-year anniversary of SpectraLock Grout. This mosaic art gallery was comprised of unique, museum-quality creations using SpectraLock Pro Premium Grout with Dazzle.
Ryan Blair, Laticrete’s channel manager, said, “At TSP, we have arranged for these exclusive works of mosaic art to be showcased in the area right where attendees will be gathering during the event. They’ll have the opportunity to see the many facets SpectraLock can be used in a beautiful, focal setting…and then, to bid and buy them outright. In conjunction with the officials of the associations hosting TSP, all monies collected will be donated to Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) and Tile Contractors’ Association of America (TCAA) scholarship funds.”
Bart Bettiga, NTCA’s executive director added, “I absolutely love this idea. Everyone wins. The associations backing TSP will get great exposure from this, as will the artists. Laticrete will also benefit by reinforcing its longstanding reputation of giving back to those industries in which it serves.”
“The amazing SpectraLock Dazzle features and more will be clearly visible when attendees of TSP witness these beautiful mosaic pieces firsthand,” concluded Blair.
