Connected community is the practice of working to understand the social issues affecting our community, actively promoting awareness of other perspectives, and fostering understanding through the visual arts.
VisArts’ strength is our ability to bring people together through shared creative experiences, fostering exposure to new perspectives, mutual respect, and a truly connected community.
Since mid-January 2021, VisArts has exhibited on its Rooftop terrace, a series of public art pieces commissioned by the Wheaton Arts Parade in the fall of 2020. Due to restrictions as a result of COVID, the annual parade and celebration of artists in downtown Wheaton could not occur last year. Instead, thirteen artists created pieces in the form of tetrahedrons which were placed across the Wheaton area for the public to view. QR codes on the pieces enabled visitors to hear from the artists about their work and vision.
Join us for a conversation with artists Sandra Perez-Ramos and Carlos Ramos, and the creators of the Paths of Pyramids.
