AOB Reveals New ‘Knee Wall’ in Montgomery County

Written by admin on . Posted in Uncategorized

County Executive Ike Leggett’s team and Arts on the Block staff and student apprentices unveil one of twenty mosaic designs on knee walls across the county. This one’s at the corner of Hungerford Drive and Jefferson Avenue in Rockville. Students from Rockville, Wheaton, and Richard Montgomery high schools competed to have their mosaics chosen.

“It definitely helped me out with team bonding, which was something I previously lacked in. So, getting an opportunity to work with others helped me out a lot,” sad Joanna Vigil-Coello, the student apprentice behind the newly designed knee wall called “Furry Ball.”

There are more than 400 knee walls in the county. They are designed to keep wheelchairs from rolling into busy streets.
