We transport our on-going mural projects to festivals and gatherings throughout the area where community members work with us to create vibrant paintings which incorporate local history. Completed panels - designed to be weatherproof - are then displayed throughout our area.
Coloring The Chesapeake
We have created a beautiful alphabetical coloring book,
“A is for Arster”. Each letter features a drawing and poem. We’ll be at the Chestertown Artisan Market on Saturdays where kids will be able to color and chat with us about art, poetry and local history. We’ll have pages to give away and books for sale. We’re working towards being able to give away books to every child we meet. If you’d like to buy a book for a child….
Rail Trail Mural
We're planning a series of 4’ x 12’ murals, the artwork changing out three times a year. We’ll construct a sturdy frame mounted on the wall of a building that faces the Wayne Gilchrist Trail. The murals themselves will be painted offsite at various community events in the region. The first painting features the image and words of Henry Highland Garnet, former enslaved person, abolitionist, minister, educator and orator who lived in nearby Chesterville as a child before his family escaped to New York.
