The Montgomery Planning Department, Silver Spring Arts and Entertainment District, and Silver Spring Urban District invite you to an art walk in Silver Spring!
Why join the art walk? 1) get a behind the scenes glimpse of the public artworks, 2) network with the community, and (most importantly) 3) have fun!
On APRIL 18th the Silver Spring Art Walk will feature painted murals in Silver Spring. We begin the evening with FREE Apps at TTT-Tacos, Tortas, & Tequila (2nd Floor near the bar) as we discuss Neo Indigenous a mural created by New York graffiti artist and Mexican native Marka27. The mural was commissioned by TTT owner Ivan Iricanin.
Next the tour will visit Silver Spring’s most beloved artwork Penguin Rush Hour by artist Sallie Calmer and then to Silver Spring’s newest mural titled Traincarmachameleon. Depending on the March/April temperatures, this mural should be mid-installation. We will discuss the themes for this project and provide a behind the scenes glimpse at the process of creating a mural with artist Goodloe Byron.
The tour will continue with mural stops throughout Fenton Village along the Georgia Avenue corridor. Discussions will include information about the history of the artworks, but also about the impact of public art on community revitalization and the technical differences between painted murals and other genres of public art.
