New Mural for Takoma/Langley

A new mural is coming to the Takoma/Langley Crossroads this spring. It will be painted on the side of 1337 Holton Lane, across the street from the large mural created in 2015. The Takoma/Langley Crossroads Development Authority (CDA) has contracted with the Krsko Group to create the new mural. Both properties are owned by JBGR, which has given its approval to the project.

The artists will seek community input on possible themes for the new mural at two community meetings at the Takoma Park Recreation Center, 7315 New Hampshire Avenue. The first meeting is Friday, March 17 from 6-8 p.m. The artists will introduce past projects, process and vision for the mural, and engage in an exchange of ideas with the community. The second meeting is on Thursday, March 23 from 6:30-8:30 p.m., where the artists will present an updated sketch that incorporates ideas from the March 17 meeting. The mural will be designed to incorporate imagery resulting from the community discussions, and participants will encouraged to create stencils representing the ideas and to paint them.

Community residents are invited to attend the March 17 and March 23 meetings and offer their ideas to the Krsko Group. For more information, call 301-445-7910.
