Community Art Project
Bring trinkets and copies of family photos (please note items will not be returned) for our community art project! ArtFest patrons of all ages are invited to visit Room 117B to create mixed media tiles that represent themselves in community. The mosaics will form a larger piece that will find a home on our campus.
ArtFest is a proud part of Four Rivers Heritage Area's Maryland Day Celebration, a three day weekend full of great family activities across heritage sites throughout Annapolis and Anne Arundel County. All activities are free or $1. Learn more about Maryland day.
