"The Worlds We Speak" was designed by Mariam Ghani and is her first tile mosaic, mounted in Delta Airlines Terminal C's baggage claim area, the multimedia artist Mariam Ghani has created a portrait of New York based on a data visualization of the more than 700 languages and dialects spoken in the area. "The Worlds We Speak" presents six planetary clusters standing in for the city's five boroughs plus the tristate area. These spheres contain a multitude of smaller circles in a spectrum of vivid colors, each representing a linguistic community and engraved with the name of that language in its own script. The tiles and panels were produced and fabricated by NYTilemakers Here is a link to an installation video (or click the 'team' Image above) https://www.instagram.com/p/CegQoVmFCnJ/

THE DOTY RESEARCH GRANT was established in 1992 to stimulate research in the field of ceramic history and conservation. The Grant has been named in honor of Riley Doty, a tile setter, collector and historian, who has dedicated much of his life in recent years to primary research. His willingness to share his knowledge and information with others, freely and openly, has been a continuing source of inspiration.

Grants range from $500 to $5000 for any qualified individual who wishes to engage in primary research or in a preservation endeavor for the enhancement and protection of ceramic surfaces in the United States. Thus far more than $30,000 has been granted.
