We Are Takoma Series is now Takoma Park Arts!
The City’s popular We Are Takoma arts and culture series has a new name and a new look!
The series has been renamed Takoma Park Arts to more accurately reflect the focus of the series which features many free events at the Takoma Park Community Center, including concerts, plays, art exhibitions, film screenings, poetry readings, lectures, and more. A dynamic new logo will be featured in promotions and publications about the series.
“We hope more people from Takoma Park and the surrounding area will learn about our events in the Takoma Park Arts series and experience the broad array of talent in the local creative community,” said Takoma Park Arts Coordinator Brendan Smith.
The City issues calls for proposals from performers, poets, lecturers, and artists each year to stage events at the Takoma Park Community Center at 7500 Maple Avenue. The center has a state-of-the-art auditorium where performances are held and are also recorded and shared on the City’s Facebook page, Youtube, and the City TV channel. Art opening receptions are held bimonthly with art displayed in several galleries throughout the Community Center.
Christoph Michaud, a graphic designer who serves on the Takoma Park Arts and Humanities Commission, created the new Takoma Park Arts logo, which features the same blue and yellow colors in the City logo.
