Open Call: Youth Public Art @ Glen Echo Park



Public Art at Glen Echo Park


As part of our continued efforts to offer unique arts programming and to encourage new and safe ways to engage with art, Glen Echo Park Partnership Galleries will present “Togetherness,” a public art initiative representing community strength, connection, and joy for the future. 

We invite children and teens ages 3-16 to participate in this project, which will include an outdoor art display at Glen Echo Park.

Artworks may incorporate positive words of hope in response to the current situations in our country and the world. “Togetherness” invites kids and teens to feel a sense of freedom, share their experiences, be heard, and connect through visual and public art.
