HELP MAKE OUR CREATIVE CHAMPIONS CENTERPIECE!
Our new spot in downtown Silver Spring will be a hub of activity for creative teenagers and young adults throughout the region. And YOU can play a special role in creating its artistic centerpiece. Designed by Serena Feingold, the large-scale mosaic mural will be fabricated in glittering glass tile by the entire AOB studio crew - and you!
Make your gift right now for a rare and remarkable opportunity to join an apprentice-led team to build the Creative Champions Centerpiece, starting with a September 18th mosaic-making party!
This new work is a bold creative statement for our permanent studio. As you enter, the colorful abstract landscape will glitter and glow in the light. As you get closer, you'll recognize the names of the creative champions who make all our work possible. Even better, the mural works as a 'learning landscape' -- embedded with the colors, types of tile, and andamento patterns that crew members need to lead mosaic workshops.

Artist's Design for our Creative Champions Centerpiece
“This piece is meant to be a welcoming focal point of the new AOB studio. It is designed to be vibrant, vocal, and expressive – just like the Arts on the Block community!
Compositionally, the organic shapes flow between more graphic lines, moving like a landscape but staying in the abstract.
This mosaic is meant to bring people into our space and show them how creative, skilled, and colorful we are as a community and organization.”
