Arts on the Block Building Community Happy Hour

On March 20th, Hickok Cole hosted a Building Community happy hour to introduce the Arts on the Block studio design to our industry partners. The Arts on the Block (AOB) studio crew presented their works in progress, shared donor opportunities for the studio build out, and led a mosaic workshop for the event attendees. Our interior design team, led by Kirsten Lytle, illustrated the vision for the new studio design with renderings and a virtual reality experience so everyone could walk through the new mosaic studio.

Thank you to all our friends in attendance for your excitement to get involved, and to our engineering partners GPI Engineering for joining us on this project. We’ll be reaching out to new partners throughout the summer.

Please email us you’d like to learn more.

Special thanks to the many Full Circle Committee event volunteers, the Happy Hour Committee for donated beverages, and Pizzeria Paradiso for donated food. Hickok Cole and GPI Engineering are partnered with local arts education nonprofit Arts on the Block to design their future home in the Downtown Silver Spring Library. This new, highly visible location will expand art and design training to creative youth and create a community destination for art activities.
