The Loews Philadelphia Hotel has donated a 40-foot long mosaic comprised of more than a million pieces that was commissioned for the hotel’s restaurant SoleFood, which closed in November.

The recipient is the CAPA High School in South Philadelphia.

The location, at 12th and Market Streets, will be home to Bank & Bourbon, which will debut April 2014.

When the hotel first opened, the color scheme throughout the entire building stemmed from this piece that was designed by local artist Richard Watson and assembled by Stephen Miotto, a mosaic fabricator.

The Loews Philadelphia Hotel decided to donate the piece to CAPA so it could be appreciated and serve as inspiration to the students.

The Loews Philadelphia Hotel picked up the tab of $6,000 for the move and installation.
