CAROUSEL MURAL PROJECT
On May 20 to 22, the Partnership, in collaboration with Future History Now (FHN), brought to life a mural on the grounds of Glen Echo Park that commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Park’s Dentzel carousel. The mural depicts and celebrates the carousel as a place of fun and childhood memories, as well its role in history as part of the Washington, D.C. civil rights movement.
We are proud to partner with FHN (https://www.futurehistorynow.
For this project, the Partnership also partnered with two Montgomery County based nonprofit youth organizations: Community Bridges, which empowers girls from diverse backgrounds to become exceptional students and positive leaders, and Identity, an organization that helps Latino and other historically underserved youth to reach their highest potential.
