Video presentation by Hillary Chisolm Sloate, given at the rededication of Civitas Branching, a 5-panel mosaic depicting scenes from the College Hill neighborhood. Sloate was the mosaicist who conceived and directed the project. The mosaic was created as a collaborative art project by students of the College of the Holy Cross and residents of the College Hill neighborhood in Worcester, Massachusetts. It was originally installed on the College Hill Civic Association building located at 79 Kendig Street in Worcester, Massachusetts.

In 2016, the mosaic was relocated to the east patio of Dinand Library on the campus of the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. A rededication ceremony was held April 20, 2016. Several members of the community who had participated in the mosaic were in attendance.

The occasion also marked the dedication of Lungs of the Planet, a tile mural installed on the west patio Rooftop Garden of Dinand Library.
