Community Report: Fall 2016 to Spring 2018

A student puts together tiles for the Mosaic Mural for the Greenbelt Elementary School.

The mural is important to me because I was one of the 2017-2018 fourth graders who helped make it. I mostly did panels in the bottom right corner. I feel proud knowing I had the privilege of making this. The artist could have made the mural themselves yet asked us to help. I love that we got to use cement and tile cutters. I love the vibrant, shiny colors. This was the best art project I have ever done.” Abraham C. (Greenbelt Elementary School.

The above quote is from a very visible project Greenbelt Community Foundation funded in the fall of 2017, “Greenbelt Elementary Springs to Life Mosaic Mural Project: Celebrating Pollinators.” The grant was awarded to Greenbelt Association for the Visual Arts (GAVA) who organized the project.
