...And Thank You To The Forty Wonderful Maryland Creatives Who Responded To Our Call To Artists.
Three local mural artists have created design concepts for a mural on a highly visible wall at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Price Avenue in Downtown Wheaton. It will be a beautiful new addition and help improve Wheaton's walkability and draw people who will support Wheaton’s economy, The mural will be on the commercial building at 11301 Georgia Avenue where Caramelo Bakery is located. The building has been owned by the same family since the 1950’s when it was built.
The selected artists: Eric B Ricks, Juan Pineda and Nicole Bourgea created detailed design concepts which are ready for community viewing and comment from April 11-May 1, 2022 on this website. A Selection Committee will then review the designs, taking into consideration comments from the community. The Committee will recommend a finalist to the property owner. The property owner will make the final decision. The mural will be completed by September 9, 2022 and celebrated at The Wheaton Arts Parade and Festival on Sunday September 25, 2022.
