Le Magnifique Mario Lemieux Mosaic Unveiled at CONSOL

Happy 45th birthday to Mario Lemieux!

In celebration of Super Mario’s b-day, the Penguins unveiled an incredible, wall-sized mosaic of #66 at the CONSOL Energy Center today.

The mosaic is made up of more than 21,000 personal pictures of Penguins fans who donated $66 or more to the Mario Lemieux Foundation.

Fans can actually search for their photo at an interactive computer kiosk at the arena, or online at mariomosaic.com.
