Common Ground: “Through My Eyes”

July 26th, AOB’s fifth annual pop-up event showcased another successful season of art making and civic engagement in the Carroll Avenue/Quebec Terrace (CAQT) community. In partnership with the Gandhi Brigade, the YMCA and the Trawick Foundation, Arts on the Block strives to achieve positive community change through the arts in this underserved Silver Spring neighborhood.

This year, in addition to spoken word performances and an expansive display of mosaic pavers and glazed window paintings, local teens shared their experience in helping to design a working rain and reading garden for the YMCA Community Center, featuring illuminated stepping stones they are creating for the final installation next year.
