Art Showcase

Art Showcase

Enjoy rotating art throughout the year in our Art Showcase! Beginning in June 2019, enjoy artwork from the Celebrating Through Art: The First Lady’s Mental Health Awareness Youth Art Display. Created by children from all over Maryland, each piece expresses something that makes the young creator feel joyful, healthy or optimistic. The artwork was originally curated and displayed at the Lowe House Building in Annapolis in recognition of Mental Health Awareness month, and resulted from a partnership between the First Lady of Maryland, the Maryland Department of Disabilities, and the Maryland State Department of Education.
