"UNSUNG HEROES" Art Opening Reception this Thursday at the Takoma Park Community Center

UNSUNG HEROES Art Opening Reception
Thursday, July 28 at 7:30 pm 
Takoma Park Community Center
7500 Maple Avenue 

Local artist Renee Lachman is honoring City of Takoma Park employees whose important work often goes unnoticed in a new series of paintings and charcoal drawings. Sanitation workers, gardeners, crossing guards, and library staff are featured in her artwork.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve celebrated the work of doctors, nurses, and firefighters. I wanted to highlight Takoma Park’s other unsung heroes,” Lachman said.

The opening reception at the Takoma Park Community Center is free and open to everyone. The exhibition is supported by a grant from the City’s Arts and Humanities Division. Go to to learn more about our Takoma Park Arts events series and to sign up for our e-newsletter.
