Wednesday, January 30, 2013— The Hyattsville Community Development Corporation (CDC) seeks to match-up property owners in the Gateway Arts District with area artists to use building exteriors, in order to populate the Arts District with attractive, small-scale street art.
The Street Art Initiative will assist business owners by seeding the transformation of unattractive building exteriors with captivating, small, exterior artworks. An arts-based development strategy can demonstrate that our community is comprised of unrealized hotspots for creativity. Sponsored by the Gateway Arts District Management Team under the leadership of County Councilman Will Campos (District 2) and M-NCPPC, our program will captivate residents, visitors, and riders on US Route 1 (20,000 vehicles daily) and encourage them to patronize our businesses and public art sites.
Available to twenty interested property owners/tenants, street artists will craft creative, clever, welcoming street art that will visually resonate with our community’s many voices.
