Inspired by the Stanton Center community artists in ArtWalk’s First Exhibition, ArtWalk II continues this mission to spotlight the talent and pride of artists within diverse community organizations. And the most dramatic way to celebrate this art is in grand scale on Annapolis/Anne Arundel County walls and public spaces.
LIGHTHOUSE & PROVIDENCE CENTER ARTISTS | HEALING GARDEN at LIGHTHOUSE, HUDSON ST.
Artists from Lighthouse Shelter & the Providence Center Art Institute collaborated in the Art at Large studio to create four large scale murals. A variety of media and tools were used (even a baby's footprint!) to express the colors, symbols, and motifs that enliven the Lighthouse Shelter Healing Garden today.
Completed October 2010.

VISIONWORKSHOPS ESOL STUDENT PHOTOGRAPHERS | PIP MOYER REC CENTER, HILLTOP LANE
VisionWorkshops provides youths from under served communities the incredible opportunity to capture their world through photojournalism workshops; the ESOL students of their Crossing Borders program produced 24,000 action-packed photographs on the subject of soccer. The outstanding image chosen to don the front of the Pip Moyer Rec Center on Hilltop Lane was captured by student Cande Ernesto Castaneda. An exhibition of 60 more stunning photographs from the program accompanied the unveiling. Completed December 2011.

ANNAPOLIS SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER ARTISTS | MARKETHOUSE, CITY DOCK
When ArtWalk asked the artists of the Annapolis Senior Activity Center at Wiley H. Bates Heritage Park for their best works on the subject of florals, we were overwhelmed by the response. An inspiring variety of subject, media, style, and interpretation gave curator Sally Wern Comport nothing short of a garden to work with. To bring life and color to the revitalized MarketHouse, 8 colorful pennants suspend above patrons displaying 16 unique works of art.
Completed August 2013.

BATES ARTS INTEGRATION MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS | WILEY H. BATES + MARYLAND HALL INTEGRATED ARTS CAMPUS FENCE
Pablo Picasso once said "Every child is an artist." That is true, but the students of Bates Arts Integration Middle School may have made Picasso feel as those his words were a little understated. The self-portraits produced by these students are confident and uninhibited, which is why they perfectly depict dancing stars that take flight across the fence.
Completed November 2013.
