On exhibit March 20 – May 31, 2021
All the way from Wheaton! An outdoor exhibit of 13 human-sized pyramids designed by Montgomery County Artists. Come take a walk along the “Path of Pyramids.”
What started as a mascot for the annual Wheaton Arts Parade grew into a juried art exhibit. Each of the large pyramid sculptures was created by a local artist and they all speak to Wheaton’s diverse cultures. One is a mosaic that was made with 3 families as a tribute to their Salvadoran heritage. Another features images from the artist’s Peruvian culture. A third is made of mandalas inspired by the artist’s native Costa Rica. One Montgomery Green collaborated with one local artist to create a pyramid using non-recyclable #6 plastics.
The pyramids are regular tetrahedrons made up of four equilateral triangles. The heart of Wheaton also is a triangle created by the intersection of three state highways and the annual Wheaton Arts Parade marches around the triangle, bringing together Wheaton’s citizens, cultures, and commerce with art.
