Born and raised in Baltimore, Michael A. McCoy picked up a camera as a young teen. It wasn't until his two tours of duty in Iraq and the loss of his mother, though, that McCoy took up photography as means of focus, expression, and escape. His instinct for light and composition combined with his curious mind and engaging personality produce tender yet powerful portraits of fellow veterans combating PTSD, individuals supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, men in barber shops, youth at play, and mother and fathers with children. In other words his portraits, and his camera, are his voice and they speak of both the struggles and the joys of life and deployment. 


Michael A. McCoy's work has been featured in Time, Rolling Stone, and The Baltimore Sun. In 2017, Time named McCoy one of the "12 African American Photographers You Should Follow Right Now."


Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

February 9 - March 31, 2018

Presenter: Adventure Theatre MTC

Recommended Ages: All ages

Location: Adventure Theatre

Contact Phone: 301-634-2270




Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day. To be quite honest, it's a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. But then, everybody has bad days, sometimes. Not only does Alexander wake up with gum in his hair, but his mother forgets to pack him dessert, and his best friend decides he's not his best friend anymore. And if that's not bad enough, Alexander's brothers don't have any cavities but - he does. And just when it can't get any worse, there are lima beans for supper and - yuck!- kissing on the TV. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia.

Contact Phone: 301-634-2222




Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present I Draw the Line: Oil Paintings by Robert LeMar. In this exhibition of paintings, LeMar experiments with different approaches to outlining, while seeking to maintain a strong sense of realism.  Although done entirely with oil on canvas, every painting is really about the drawn line. Color also plays a major role in the work, as it conveys light and form. Even so, it all starts with a line drawn on canvas. In this work, LeMar seeks to champion that line. Le Mar was the recipient of the Park View Artist Award at the 2017 Labor Day Art Show at Glen Echo Park.
